In loving memory of our precious girl.
Esmé Blore-Rimmer was 17 years of age; she had attended the Reading Festival and had been
camping with friends. They had seen some of her favourite bands play over the August 2013
Bank Holiday weekend. She was previously fit and well with no significant past medical history.
Contrary to hurtful press speculation, she had not taken illicit drugs at the festival. Esmé simply
became unwell with a bout of vomiting and returned home a day earlier than planned from
the trip. Esmé continued to vomit throughout the night and was admitted to A & E the following
day. Her condition remained stable until she suffered a sudden cardiac arrest early evening.
Sadly, prolonged resuscitation was not successful and she lost her fight to survive on Monday
26th August 2013.
Esmé was a beautiful, vibrant and spirited girl; she had a true zest for enjoying life to the full.
She had a cracking sense of humour and a very kind spirit that brought joy to many. She had
grown into a confident young woman, who was very clear that her next educational step
would be to study Fashion Communication and Styling, preferably at Middlesex University. Esmé
was never afraid to voice her opinion. Despite her young age, she had a strong work ethic and
she graced us all with her infectious smile and laugh. Esmé is deeply missed by many of the
hearts she touched.
Following a serious investigation by the hospital into her sudden and unexplained death, her
family were eventually notified that Esmé had undiagnosed MCADD, a condition of which we had never
Early in January this year, Esmé’s brother, Dominic (aged 13), was tested and found to have the
same condition. Obviously, this was another devastating blow for us, but we have been
reassured that providing the condition is diagnosed and dietary recommendations are adhered,
this should be relatively straight forward to manage.
Bittersweet information following the loss of Esmé.
We would like to support Climb and raise awareness of MCADD and other metabolic diseases
and remember Esmé via the Galaxy Tribute Fund.
Heartache no one can heal, memories no one can steal.
