A “fun-loving and passionate” woman suddenly collapsed while shopping on her 20th birthday and died weeks later of a rare brain disorder.

Avid sports fan Brazil Walsh, known to her friends as Be, was out shopping to celebrate the milestone in April this year when she collapsed at Harvey Nichols and was hospitalized.

Be was later transferred to Leeds General Infirmary, where she was diagnosed with encephalitis, a rare inflammation that attacks the vision and memory parts of the brain.

She eventually went into a coma and died on March 3. Yorkshire Live Reports.

Speaking on behalf of Be’s mother, Lilibeth Walsh, family member Kirsty Marshall said: “Be was a fun-loving, passionate and caring young woman. She was fit, healthy and a master of judo.






Her heartbroken friends are raising funds for her funeral

“After numerous tests and numerous doctors not only from Leeds but also from London and Oxford, it was finally diagnosed. Unfortunately there is no cure and her brain couldn’t cope anymore, the virus had spread everywhere.

“In advanced stages, people can lose the ability to walk because their muscles stiffen or spasm. There is progressive deterioration to the point of coma.

“Within a few weeks, Be went from being forgetful but able to speak to being unable to communicate at all.”

Best friend Mia Cruickshanks said: “Brazil collapsed and was rushed to hospital on her birthday. She spent nearly five weeks battling Dawson’s disease. On June 3rd, Brazil got their angel wings.

“We (her best friends) are absolutely heartbroken and want to help her give the greatest farewell.

“Anyone who knows Brazil knows that she was the most amazing, beautiful, kind, fun and talented young lady who was loved beyond measure.”

Be’s family and friends are now planning to raise £1,000 for the 20-year-old’s funeral, and her former riding instructor is holding a fundraiser on June 25 at the stables where she used to train.

Trainer Emma Louise said: “I was her riding instructor at the Bradshaw Road Stables and Riding School for many years. She was part of the Stables family. In the end, she pursued her judo at a high level.

“We are absolutely heartbroken and want to help her give the greatest farewell. We would also like to donate some money to charity.

“We’re doing a fundraiser. We want to see as many faces as possible on foot or on horseback. We’ll take buckets with us.”
