Jessica was a well loved and thought of young lady. She adored her family and sadly was taken from us last August age 23. We continue to miss her every single day. Her friends and family have decided that we would like to raise funds for Jessica Jane which will be shared with the key charities and hospitals that over her short life have supported both Jessica and the family.
Alder hey Renal Unit
MacDonald House Alder Hey Children's Hospital
Wrexham renal Unit
Ty Gobaith hospice
Jessica passed away at home with her family after a long battle with renal failure (amongst other conditions). She has been receiving dialysis up to 6 days per week and was diagnosed with renal failure at age 12. Jessica was born with a cloaca anomaly which is a rare condition and was rushed to Alder Hay shortly after she was born. The team at Alder Hey worked to save Jessicas life and she remained under their care until she moved over to adult services and during that time she had undergone over 30 surgeries. Jessica received a transplant from a kidney donated by her father and a couple years later when it failed she then had to return to dialysis 6 days a week which was hard and the staff at the renal unit in Wrexham were brilliant with her.
During all of this time the family received support through a number of key charities. MacDonald house in Liverpool meant that I (her mother) could stay with her at all times and be a family, sometimes we would stay there free of charge for many months. Ty Gobaith Hospice also provided us with support and where we as a family could go for respite. They continue to support us now since Jessicas bereavement with counselling.

From September 1st 2018 I will be doing 100 days alcohol free. Over the past 12 months I have used alcohol as a way of coping with my emotions and drinking excessively. During my summer break I read an amazing book called The Sober Diaries and this inspired me to address the way that I have been managing my grief. Giving up alcohol would be great way to raise money in Jessicas memory as I know she would be concerned if she know how I have been coping. Hope that you will be able to sponsor me and I will keep everyone updated on here.
