From Coma to Confidence...
Caitlin Alsop. Sepsis Survivor.
"You never know how strong you are, until you’re faced with life or death. Sepsis left me fighting for my life, ventilated and comatosed. Ironically in nearly losing my tongue and my life; I gained a whole new voice and purpose. I am so grateful to the doctors and nurses for my life and it has become my mission to make a difference and raise awareness.
My story is a journey from “coma to confidence”. After 9 days in a coma; I chose to wear my scars with pride and share my story to help others. I'm honored to have been invited to share my story all over the world, work with charities, hospitals and meet the most incredible survivors and doctors.
I hope that sharing my story helps someone with their own scars, inspires someone and enables someone to see just how strong they truly are. “Never be ashamed of a scar, because it means that something tried to beat you but you were stronger than it”.
Since finding out it was sepsis that nearly took my life...and kills someone every 2.8 seconds; I've really wanted to make a difference in this area. Please click below to see some of my community projects and let me know if you would like to get involved!
