Katie and her husband lived a wonderful life in Newcastle together, she was a teacher but the had always struggled to have children of their own.

So when Katie, or ‘Mrs Day’, as the children she taught would call her, fell pregnant, they were understandably ecstatic.

However, when Katie was just 10 weeks away from giving birth, she suffered a stroke and was rushed to hospital, where her baby was delivered early.

Little Francis came into the world healthy and happy, but he was never to meet his mother.

Katie never woke up after giving birth to Francis.

Now, a friend of the couple have set up a page for their children’s teacher, Mrs Day, in a bid to help her husband Michael and baby Francis get through this unbearably difficult time.
