It was the worst day of this Long Sutton mum's life and she lives with it everyday.

Christine Carter's world fell apart when her husband and son found that her daughter had died after a severe epileptic seizure.

Samantha was just 25-years-old and was seven months pregnant.

Since that awful day Christine has campaigned to raise awareness about SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).

It kills three people every day but Christine says not enough people with epilepsy are made aware of it.

She's now released a poetry collection that she wrote about Samantha.

The whole experience has helped her come to terms with her loss.

Christine hopes by sharing these personal memories she also raises awareness about SUDEP.
