Louise Gergel died suddenly at the age of 32. She had been diagnosed with Antiphiospholipid Syndrome.
In her short life she made a huge contribution to the community by giving much of herself to people in need and projects of communal welfare.
Her family wish to perpetuate her name, especially so that her son, Max, who was three when she died, may follow Louise's good example in his path through life.
They also hope to help ensure that other families do not suffer similar tragedies.
The Louise Gergel Fellowship was established in 2003 to raise money to fund research into Hughes Syndrome and to increase awareness of the disease to help other sufferers.
