Samantha was a lovely young woman who helped to bring so many lives into this world. She had a bright future ahead of her and sadly this was taken away far too soon.
Samantha's story has been followed by midwives and NHS workers worldwide. They have been touched by the kinds words from mothers Samantha had cared for and colleagues who have worked alongside her. Samantha has been described as a warm, gentle, kind woman and will be remembered for her amazing efforts as a midwife and will be truly missed by many.
Samantha's extended NHS family would like to support her mother Carole, and sister Gemma in their time of grief by contributing to Samantha's funeral costs and to ensure one of our shining stars has the send off she deserves. Rest in peace Samantha.
I would like to thank each and every one of you that has made a donation so far. After reaching the original goal, and as donations continue to come in, we have increased goal to £15,000. The extra donations will go towards funeral costs and anything that the family may need at this time. Thank you all once again for all the love and support shown.
