My target 26 mi

I’m fundraising for the charity Sands!

This year I'm taking part in My Marathon My Way to raise vital funds for Sands during this incredibly difficult time.

In these uncertain times, the Sands helpline and online community are vital in keeping bereaved families connected by offering a safe, confidential and compassionate space to talk.

The NHS is stretched and Sands are there to support with the various emotional needs bereaved parents and families have day to day, which can be heightened in such uncertain times.

Sands is not immune from the effects of this pandemic so I’m taking on My Marathon My Way to save lives with every mile.

My Updates

In Memory of my Son James

Sunday 10th May
On the 8th of December 2019, my husband and I sadly lost our Son during labour at 39+5weeks. 

I was in the Triage Ward full of excitement to meet our boy. I was seen and sent through and was put on the CTG machine, but within 3 minutes of being on the machine, his heart had just stopped with no distress shown nothing. 
My pregnancy was healthy throughout and my Boy was healthy too.

When I delivered him the cord was around his neck which we accept would have been the cause of his heart just stopping. I had all of the general tests done which all came back negative.

Between the Hospital and SANDS, they've been amazing. I got to spend time with my son and hours after I delivered him a photographer was in to take pictures. I was given a box from SANDS with keepsakes and memories of James from handprints to some of his hair. 
With them also arranging the funeral and the continued support they offer has just all been amazing and I wouldn't know how I would have managed without their valuable support.
