    Story

    Thank you for taking your time to read our short story about CHELSEA BLUE.17. We are trying turning Heartache into something POSITIVE! Fundraising, Awareness and fighting for change so no other families have to go through what we have as a family broken_heartblue_heart

    We are raising FUNDS for her local CLUBS!🥰 "TO HELP KIDS STAY CREATIVE ! Its good to TALK but more importantly to LISTEN blue_heart If our story can save one family from going through what we have, we have achieved something PRICELESS 🥰

    On the 10th of April while I was away at sea I got the call no parent should get, that my baby girl had done an act of self harm whilst at a psychiatric secure hospital. 15 hours travelling to get back to say my last good night. SADLY, on the 12th of April, Chelsea failed the 7 stage stem cell test and was pronounced dead at 14:52 sobsob Chelsea Blue lost her battle.

    Chelsea had been suffering since early teens with anorexia and mental health which seen her been sectioned under the mental act and Chelsea spent the next 3 years struggling. Chelsea was an inspiring gymnast, singer, Performer and horse rider. She spent 7 years been apart of Bridlington gymnastics club winning medals and taking part in shows for the club. She loved to sing and did a number of singing solo parts for shows at school. She loved to be there and help everyone in all situations.

    ORGAN DONATIONS. So on her unfortunate death we decided that Chelsea would be happy to put her organs up for donation as they would be able to help people with a life that she didn't want. Chelsea successfully donated her Heart, Kidneys and liver. 4 families have all been helped with the help of our baby girl... Our real life super hero! Even in her darkest of days.

    We are raising money to help BRIDLINGTON GYMNASTICS CLUB find a NEW VENUE / EQUIPMENT to keep our little gymnasts doing what they love. And to raise money for the FACILITIES at performing arts clubs at her 2 schools. CHELSEA love to sing and dance so her gift is helping the places that helped her make some happy memories in happier times

    Thank you x

    We lost our baby girl to mental health at a young age of 17. Mental health is a current day pandemic , and we would like to help as much as we can as a family ❤️💔 raising money to help the places she loved makes us all happy that other children can enjoy what she did.
