Hi - Thanks for visiting my webpage,
On 2nd March 2008, I will be pulling on my running vest and attempting to complete the Reading Half Marathon.
I will be trying to raise as much money as possible for the charity "COSMIC", the charity supporting the Children's Intensive Care Unit at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington. The reason for attempting this challenge is very close to my heart.
In April 2007, Grace, the daughter of my very close friends, Stuart and Natalie Bradburn, passed away. Grace was just 13 months old. Grace developed Chicken Pox which worsened over several days. On her first birthday she was admitted to the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. While at the Royal Berkshire Hospital her condition continued to worsen and she was put on a ventilator. A decision was taken to transfer her by emergency ambulance to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at St Mary's in Paddington. Grace fought bravely for another 3 weeks, but in the end her immune system was unable to overcome the virus and she passed away.
While Grace was at St Mary's she benefited from world class treatment and care from her Doctors and Nurses who did everything possible to help her - she could not have been in a better place. Nat and Stu also benefited from the work of COSMIC, who paid for them to stay in a hotel for the 3 weeks that Grace was in St Mary's. This was immensely important and ensured that Nat and Stu were never far away and could respond quickly as Grace's condition fluctuated. COSMIC has also purchased vital hi-tech medical equipment for use on the unit, as well as funding continuing research into saving desperately sick children in the future.
