Event description
Purple Colour Run Raising Money in Memory of Maya for Meningitis Research

About this Event

One year old Maya Ford was taken into Darent Valley Hospital A&E on 1 August 2012 and presented with convulsions, a rash, high temperature and fast heart rate. She died the next day.

Meningitis and septicaemia are deadly diseases that strike without warning. Rapid diagnosis and treatment with antibiotics are required to provide the best chance of survival. However, the NHS Trust in charge of Maya admitted failings and have apologised for their inadequate care.

Following her death, Maya’s parents, Louise Whiteman and Tony Ford from Dartford, and grandma, Dawn Whiteman (left) from Crayford, demanded an investigation. In September 2015, Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust admitted failing to examine Maya adequately and failing to admit her for observation and tests. It is thought that her death could have been prevented had she been cared for according to national health guidelines.

Since Maya’s death, the family have worked tirelessly to raise funds for MRF, the charity that supported them after Maya died, and Dawn became an Ambassador for MRF – raising awareness of the disease and representing the charity in her local community. Dawn
