Grace and Tom Penderford had a strong marriage, a comfortable home in the English countryside and a healthy baby girl, Chloe. They were happy. They were normal.

But soon after Chloe turns three, tragedy strikes when a disease called sepsis claims the life of their daughter, devastating their small family. The Penderfords had never heard of sepsis - a cruel, indiscriminate disease that takes a life somewhere in the world every three and a half seconds. Now, with their world crumbling, they must mend each others broken hearts... and try to save their marriage if they can.

Sepsis is a potentially life threatening condition, however it can be easily treated if caught early enough. Help keep others safe by learning the symptoms of sepsis and spread the word on to look out for. To find out more about sepsis, please visit
