Yasmina Sugliano- Heart Broken Student Died After Hearing About friend Portia Jones’ Death

Meet Yasmina Sugliano she was a young beautiful student, amazing friend, beloved daughter who left this world after her heart could handle the pain for the loss of her dear friend Portia Jones, this is a very sad story. Would you like to know more about Ms. Sugliano? Check it out!


There are no words to describe the sad news about the death of two young women, two close friends who died on the same day just hours apart  leaving an emptiness in the hearts of their families and friends.

25 year-old Yasmina Sugliano from Crawley, West Sussex was born on August 11th, 1986 she went to St Wilfrid’s school after high school Yasmina Sugliano relocated in London where she went to London University for the Creative Arts. Since she was very old her mother Kay Sugliano (a British Airways employee) knew her daughter Yasmina suffered from dilated cardiomyopathy (patients with dilated cardiomyopathy have enlarged heart with thin heart muscle walls resulting in blood pumping deficiency, this problems also affects the liver, lungs and other organs) it was due to her heart problem that about two years ago Yasmina ended up in the hospital with a chest infection, in there she met 23 year-old Portia Jones who suffered from Cystic fibrosis (looking for a description to this disease this is what I found “scarring (fibrosis) and cyst formation within the pancreas, first recognized in the 1930s.[1] Difficulty breathing is the most serious symptom and results from frequent lung infections that are treated with, though not cured by, antibiotics and other medications. A multitude of other symptoms, including sinus infections, poor growth, diarrhea, and infertility result from the effects of CF on other parts of the body”.

Portia and Yasmina became real close friends, they would bring each other spirits up when one of them was feeling down, their bond was unique and very special, Ms. Sugliano’s mother recalled..

“Each knew the trials of having cystic fibrosis. They had known each other for two years after meeting in hospitals in London where they were treated together. They loved each other very much and talked about all the things they would do when Portia got her new lungs.”

Portia have gotten married to Dale Jones recently, she was waiting for a lung transplant when she died, that same day when Yasmina Sugliano found out about her friend’s death, her heart went into arrhythmia and became weaker and weaker until she had to be rushed to the hospital, doctors tried to help her for 30 minutes but it was impossible, Yasmina was gone.

“I think she got such a shock over Portia’s death that her heart went into a dangerous arrhythmia, which is an irregular heartbeat, and she didn’t recover. She looked so peaceful and happy. I didn’t notice it at first and when I looked at her face, I was amazed at how serene she was. I sincerely believe she saw my mum and dad and Portia waiting for her. I believe they are up there together now.”

I don’t believe anyone holds the right to be worshipped, But there are many people that I respect and admire, Matin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Malcolm X and anyone who dedicates their lives to helping others.  Yasmina Sugliano

We are deeply sorry about her death, our thoughts and prayers go out to her mother Kay, other family and friends, we also like to send our condolences to Portia;’s parents, husband, family and friends.Have a look at Yasmina Sugliano’s pictures below
