Mum Finds Heartbreaking Letter From Daughter Written Hours Before She Died In Her Sleep

A mum has revealed the heartbreaking birthday letter her daughter wrote her - just hours before the 17-year-old died in her sleep.

Tanya Russell, from Somerset, was blown away by the loving note Johdi penned for her birthday.

The youngster, who was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2016, died after a seizure on October 5, 2017. Her parents had stayed at home to care for after she had a fit hours earlier.

And they even scrapped a planned trip to Marbella as worried mum Tanya felt a "sense of foreboding".

The cancelled holiday meant the loving parents were in the house when their daughter died.

Explaining her decision to stay in the UK, Tanya said: "Mark and I planned to go to Marbella for a few days.

"But weeks before the flight I had a terrible feeling of foreboding. So I cancelled.

"I can’t explain it. I knew I couldn’t leave them. If I had gone, she would have died when I was away."

On the day she died, Johdi had been off college after suffering an epileptic fit.

At around 12.25pm, Tanya found her daughter slumped over in her room.

She phoned 999 and remembers being in a "blur" as paramedics and a doctor who had been airlifted in battled to save her.

Medics worked on Johdi for two hours but she sadly passed away.

A post mortem revealed the teenager died from sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP.)

And now Tanya, who has still has "incredibly dark days" 15 months since her daughter's passing, wants to raise awareness for SUDEP.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
