FEAT was founded in memory of the late Dr Fiona Agnew and her daughter Isla, who both died after contracting Sepsis in August 2012.
Sepsis arises when the body’s response to an infection damages its own tissues and organs. It can lead to shock, multiple organ failure, and death, especially if it is not recognised early and treated promptly. Sepsis kills 44,000 people in the UK every year and is the acute bodily reaction to infection.
Established by Craig Stobo, Fiona’s husband, with the support of six of the couple’s friends, FEAT’s main objective is to stop sepsis through funding research into the early detection of the condition and its treatment and also to raise awareness about sepsis more generally.
Our hope is that in future, no-one will have to suffer what Fiona’s family and friends have suffered through the loss of a loved one to this condition.
Please help us however you can to stop Sepsis.
