How to Raise Awareness through the Press

Charlotte-Fitzmaurice-Sunday-Mirror

If you would like to raise awareness, tell your story, and help others in a similar situation, Talk to the Press is here to help.  Not only will we maximize income for you or a charity of your choice, we work with all national magazines, newspapers and TV shows to increase the exposure of your story.

This weekend Charlotte Fitzmaurice’s heart-breaking story appeared in The Sunday Mirror. Today, it also appeared in the Express, The Daily Mail, The Scotsman and several online publications.

Brave Charlotte, 36, from Barking, Essex, won the right to let her 12 –year-old disabled daughter die in a landmark court case after writing a heart-breaking letter to the judge.

The letter read: ‘My daughter is no longer my daughter, she is merely just a shell, the light from her eyes is now gone and is replaced with fear and a longing to be at peace.’ Single mum Charlotte spent 12 years caring for Nancy, who was an inpatient at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Two days before giving birth to her daughter in July 2002, Charlotte was told she carried group B streptococcus and as it had gone untreated, would result in harming her baby.Charlotte Fitzmaurice Daily Express

Nancy was born blind with hydrocephalus, meningitis and septicaemia. Her mother rushed her to hospital at ten days old and a shunt was fitted in her brain. Medics then delivered Charlotte the devastating news that her daughter would only live two to four years.

Nancy was diagnosed with epilepsy at six months old. Unable to swallow, she was fed and medicated through a tube. But Nancy fought to survive and her mother spent 12 years in and out of hospital.

Also suffering from gut failure, she had become intolerant to the cocktail of morphine and ketamine prescribed to help with the pain. Her symptoms were no longer being managed and Charlotte could only watch as her daughter screamed in pain, often for upto 24 hours. Nancy’s development was severely stunted and her level of communication was less than that of a six week old baby.

After a routine operation to have a kidney stone removed, her condition worsened and it became clear to doctors that no more could be done for Nancy. Charlotte attended an ethics meeting with the hospital board and it was decided that they would stop feeding Nancy.

Doctors explained it could take months for her daughter to die but there was nothing more they could do. Desperate to stop her suffering, Charlotte then battled to have her fluids and drugs stopped in order for her to have a quicker, more painless death.

Charlotte-Fitzmaurice-ScotsmanGOSH were unable to give Charlotte this right, but agreed to take the case to the High Court on her behalf. On 7th August, Justice Eleanor King read Charlotte’s statement out in court and instantly declared it was in Charlotte and Nancy’s best interests to withdraw fluids and let her die.

After fluids were withdrawn, Charlotte watched her daughter writhe in pain for 13  days. On 21st August, Nancy died. Charlotte said: “Nancy was my life and I spent every day since she was born caring for her. No mother wants their child to die but I had to do what was right for her. After more than a decade of watching my only child live with excruciating pain, I decided enough was enough.

“As a mother, all I could fight for now was Nancy’s right to die with dignity. Now, I have to live with that guilt forever.”

TTTP feature editor Paisley is going on This Morning tomorrow with Charlotte and is in the process of securing her two magazine placements to help raise awareness about Nancy’s story. Charlotte Fitzmaurice Daily Mail-1

Breaking News Story: Do you have Information?

Steven-Mendonca-SunDo you have information about a breaking news story? We received information on child killer Arnis Zalkans final moments, which we placed in The Sun on behalf of our client Steven Mendonca.

When Steven Mendonca got in touch with information about convicted murderer Arnis Zalkans, we knew the papers would be interested in his story.

Hostel boss Steven told us how he came face-to-face with the suspected killer of 14-year-old Alice Gross – who disappeared in August.

Tragically, Alice’s body was found hidden in the River Brent on September 30, almost a month after she went missing from her home in Hanwell. It later emerged that Alice was submerged, wrapped in a black bag and weighted down.

The body of Latvian builder Arnis Zalkalns, the prime suspect in her murder, was found hanging in woodland in Boston Manor Park on October 4.

Steven told us that whilst police were investigating Alice’s disappearance, chillingly, he believes he came into contact with Zalkans. He recalls how he popped outside the homeless hostel where he works in Harlesden, north west London, to make a phone call and he came face-to-face with a man he believes killed Alice.

He tells how Zalkans stared at him ‘like a zombie’ before begging him for help. Zalkans was carrying a heavy, 5-foot long builder’s bag over his shoulders – which Steven now believes contained Alice’s body.

The hostel chief said: “I am convinced it was Alice’s body in that bag. The bag had a huge strap and it was weighing the man down.”

The encounter took place before Zalkans was named as a prime suspect in Alice’s disappearance. He was trying to get into the hostel, just walking distance from where Alice was last seen. The confrontation took place on September 5 – the day after the suspect went missing.

Turning up at the hostel that day, Zalkans begged Steven for help but as there were no rooms available, he was forced to turn him away. Steve added: “He just stood there and had this cold, chilling look about him. He was in a trance. Something about him made me feel uneasy.

“I felt sick when I later read about Alice’s disappearance and also felt quite guilty. If I’d have put two and two together sooner I could have helped police trace her body sooner.”

The meeting was reported to the police after he saw a photograph of Zalkans on the news and immediately recognised him. He said: “What I find incredible is that he managed to walk around for nine days after the murder unnoticed by police.”

We passed on Steven’s story to The Sun and it appeared in today’s paper. If you’ve got information about a person or company or a story that has received a lot of media attention, please email message@talktothepress.com.
