The incident happened in September when Vicki Berquist and her wife Jeanette LeBlanc were visiting Louisiana. LeBlanc purchased a sack of raw oysters at a nearby market, and just 36 hours later, her health took a turn for the worse.
The experience didn't do down too well, with Bowers saying it appeared as her pal was having an allergic reaction.
At that point, the pair suspected the outbreak was merely an allergic reaction on LeBlanc's skin. "That's what we thought", Karen Bowers added.
LeBlanc's condition worsened for weeks before she succumbed.
LeBlanc's friends and family are now raising awareness about vibriosis.
When treatment is possible, understanding that flesh-eating disease has been caused by Vibrio is important, since it's treated differently from other bacteria. "(She) had a rash on her legs and everything".

LeBlanc was exposed to both raw oysters and brackish water.
Most infections occur from May through October when water temperatures are warmer.
Jeannette LeBlanc spent 21 days in hospital in September a year ago before succumbing to a deadly infection on 15 October.
She battled the illness for 21 days, but was not able to recover. People with liver conditions are much more likely to get severely ill.
"If we had known that the risk was so high, I think she would've stopped eating oysters", LeBlanc's partner said.
There are approximately a dozen different types of Vibrio bacteria that can cause various forms of vibriosis. Cases where people have caught it from the ocean have been infected with saltwater containing a Vibrio species.
While eating raw oysters is commonplace and the risk is low, it is not negligible. The infection gets worse very quickly and can be fatal if it's not recognised and treated early on. About 1 in 4 people with these serious infections die from the illness. "If they really knew what could happen to them and they could literally die within 48, 36 hours of eating raw oysters, is it really worth it?".
