Jayne Carpenter Found Hanged
An inquest heard on Tuesday that Jayne Carpenter, 53, was left with just one limb when she developed sepsis four years ago while suffering from a simple cough.
She bravely vowed to battle on by fundraising to get pioneering limb surgery not available on the NHS and raised over £20,000 of her £265,000 target.
However, she said she was “not having the quality of life but enduring it.”
An inquest heard her husband Rob, 56, got a call from Jayne on December 7 asking him to pick up their dog.
He arrived at the house in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, at 4.30 pm to find a jumper obscuring a windowpane at the front door.
Rob went inside to find his wife hanged on the stairs.
A cause of death is currently pending further investigations.
After her death, heartbroken Rob paid tribute online and said: “The brightest star in my sky has burnt out.”
Dedicated Jayne was desperate to lead an active life and said her independence had been “stripped from me overnight.”
Friends and family have now paid tribute to the “kind and beautiful lady.”
In September last year, Jayne spoke out on World Sepsis Day, hoping to raise awareness of the condition.
She said her life was turned upside down and she had told Rob that he could leave her if he wished to.
Jayne said the last three years of recovery have brought huge challenges to her and coming to terms with the limits she faces has been difficult.
