Zipporah Agyei’s should be with her precious daughter.
But sadly the doting young mother died just days before her baby girl’s first birthday.
The 21-year-old was repeatedly misdiagnosed as having a migraine. But in reality, she was showing symptoms of a deadly brain aneurysm.
Miss Agyei’s heartbroken mother, Vivien Adu-Sarfo, 47, said of her child: ‘She was a wonderful girl. A doting mother and daughter.’
Tragedy struck in October last year when Miss Agyei could not open her right eye.
She was rushed to hospital where it was discovered she had two brain aneurysms that had burst.
She later died during surgery.
Ms Agyei, from Wembley, north west London, ordeal began late last year.
She began feeling tremendous pain in her head and was rushed to Ealing Hospital in Southall, west London.
Fearing she’d had a stroke, doctors immediately ordered an ambulance to take her to the larger Charing Cross Hospital in central London.
There, scans indicated she had suffered two brain aneurysms.
Her best friend, student Imani Muhammed, 20, received numerous WhatsApp messages and phone calls from Ms Agyei.
She constantly complained about her agonising headaches, in the run-up to her hospital admission.
‘When we saw her, she was in intensive care, in an induced coma. It was so upsetting.’
‘She woke up a few days later, but was still very ill.’
On November 14, during a second round of surgery, Ms Agyei died.
The family are not yet clear what caused the aneurysms, but do not believe she bumped her head before they developed.
‘We’re waiting for an inquest,’ explained her mother, who is looking after Ms Agyei’s daughter.
‘We need to know what happened. She was so healthy, we don’t understand.’
The family have set up a fundraising page in aid of Ms Agyei’s young daughter here.
