Mum-of-two died from 'silent killer' after scratching the back of her hand while gardening

Lucy tragically died after a scratch on her hand turned out to be blood poisoning
A mum-of-two died from a 'silent killer' condition she caught from scratching the back of her hand while gardening.
Lucy Smith, from Billericay, Essex, died last year at the age of 44 – just days after a scratch on the back of her hand she got from gardening started to make her feel ill,Essex Live reports.
Lucy, who has two small children Megan, nine, and George, six, was looking forward to marrying her fiance Darren O'Neill.
The couple had just bought a new home when the family law solicitor was struck down with sepsis that causes 44,000 deaths each year - more than bowel, breast and
prostate cancer combined.
Now her family of Lucy, who attended Ingrave Johnson Primary School in Brentwood before going on to St Martins in Hutton, want to highlight the dangers of the life-threatening condition - also referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, which is triggered by an infection or injury.
