In many cases the death is violent and horrific; such as when someone dies in a road crash, or commits suicide, or dies in a major disaster or through an accident, war or terrorism. In other cases, the death is for undiagnosed medical reasons that were totally unexpected, such as cot death or a mid-life heart attack.
A sudden death tears apart families, leaving children without a mum, dad, sister or brother, and parents without their children. There is no time to prepare or say goodbye. Life has changed forever.
Sudden is a charitable initiative to support people bereaved by sudden death, and help professionals caring for these people.
