After losing our son, Harrison, to stillbirth at 5months on 29th October 2011, to say we were devastated doesn't come close. Feeling lost and helpless, we were given guidance by the hospital as to our next steps so to speak. Little did we know how much SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) had been with us all the way through our ordeal. They make sure that you have everything you need from information to help with the burial. 

To raise money and awareness for this cause, my two brothers Ben Masser & Scott Masser have decided to cycle their way across the Icelandic Highlands (300-350km) with the goal of achieving £3000. They plan on doing the ride at the end of July, start of August this year.

So please dig deep and donate.

Thank you.
