On the morning of Monday 31st March 2008 while getting ready to go to work, Laura Jane Ashworth started having a very bad asthma attack. While her mum Rachel Leake called 999 and tried desperately to revive her, Laura's airways blocked and she stopped breathing. On arrival at Bradford Royal Infirmary ICU, the doctors confirmed Lauras brain had been starved of oxygen for so long that she was completely brain damaged. After 3 days on life support... there was nothing more they could do. You were only allowed 3 people at your bedside at any one time but they couldn't control us... no one dare tell us to go! The most important people in your life were all around your bed in ICU, we held your hand, stroked your face, I so badly wanted to pluck your eyebrows, you would have been gutted knowing everyone saw them like that LOL!!! We laughed until we cried and cried until we laughed! yet we all knew... once we walked out of that door... we would never see you again.
To rub salt in the wound, organ transplant authorities refused to allow Laura's Kidneys and Pancreas go to her sick mother, who has been suffering kidney failure since becoming pregnant with Laura! Rachel attends St Lukes hospital to have dialysis 3 times a week. Laura's dying wish was for her mother to have one of her kidneys... what a beautiful gift this would have been to a mother who has just lost her only child in such tragic circumstances, for Rachel to know that part of Laura was still living on inside her and for Macie to grow up with a healthy Grandma.
Laura was my best friend, she was my soul mate, she would have been my sister-in-law at one point... and she was the loving mother to my Neice Macie Faith Murch. She lived at Brogden Hall Farm, Bradford, with her beautiful mum Rachel, Grandfather Jack and 2year old daughter Macie. She was a beautiful person, full of happiness and laughter, she didn't hate anyone, never had a bad word to say about anyone, she loved her friends and would do anything for anyone but more so, she loved her mother and daughter so very much.
Laura had only just turned 21 just 3 weeks prior to her death. She loved life and lived it to the full. Her words of wisdom to everyone she met were "Live life to the full, you don't get a second chance" how right was she!!! and she sure lived her life to the absolute fullest!!! I just hope your looking down with no regrets girl!!! Macie loves you unconditionally, she will never forget you, ever. Each night she stays with us we say goodnight and blow kisses to the stars. She says Bob Marley is looking after you.
