Joanne – A Mother’s Story

Mum Joanne Good lost her 16-year-old daughter Megan on 1 January 2014. Megan passed away in her sleep from pulmonary aspiration after drinking alcohol at a friend’s New Year’s Eve party.

Here Joanne shares Megan’s story in the hope that it will save another parent from having to go through what she’s been through.
