The Light Cinema in Wisbech is screening a film to raise awareness of sepsis disease.
‘Starfish’ tells the true story of Tom and Nic Ray, a couple from Rutland, whose lives are turned upside down in an instant.
After being ill at home, Tom developed sepsis and had to have both arms and legs amputated and part of his face removed.
The screening will be held on Wednesday November 9, in association with The UK Sepsis Trust. The screening also includes 10 minutes of exclusive red carpet and behind the scenes footage.
Sepsis is a life threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It leads to shock and multiple organ failure and can kill if not recognised early and treated promptly.
