    Story

    As many of you know, back in 1995 I gave birth to the most beautiful boy in the world. But within his first 6 months my world fell apart when he was diagnosed with a very rare condition that gave him an extremely short life span. He battled through meningitis and many many complications due to his medical condition. On the morning of 17th October 1997, I went in to get my son out of bed and he had left this world and moved on to become an angel. The pain I felt that day is indiscribable. After the funeral we tried to sort out a headstone for Nathan and the company we went through totally ruined the memorial that we had chosen and refused to change it and subsequently lost the headstone and all of the funding that we had paid to them. Shortly after wards I fell pregnant with twins and I had to make the difficult decision to put the headstone to one side to enable me to sort out the things that i needed for my twins to arrive. So here we are nearly 20 years down the line and my boy still to this day does not have the memorial I want for his grave. As you can see all that marks who is there is a small granite slab with his name and the 2 dates. I would love to be able to afford to get his headstone made and ready for it to be erected for his 20th anniversary in October of this year. So the ammount is what I have been quoted for his headstone and it can be made in time for october.

    I have decided that IF any extra money is raised I am going to donate it to a charity called SNOWDROPS. This charity is specifically for children with any form of brain injury or who suffer from a problem connected to the brain. I think that this will really be a great thing for Nathans memory to put any extra money towards this excellent charity. I have placed a link to this charity for people to go and take a look at this excellent cause.

    I can only thank you in advance, from the bottom of my heart, for any donations that i recieve in my sons name.

      Hi everyone. I am really pleased to say that yesterday we ordered the headstone and that a massive £1000.00 was paid off towards the memorial by myself and Nathan's dad. I cannot thank you enough for the donations we have already received and for your support. His headstone is definitely going to be placed between the 10-17th of October in time for his 20th anniversary. I will on that day be releasing balloons in his memory and would love for people to join me on that day if they can. Thank you all again

      Thank you so much for your donations so far. Every little bit will help. Just a quick update, Nathan's father is going to be paying for half the headstone up front and once this has been done I will adjust the total needed. I too will be putting a lump sum into the costing as well. I really do appreciate every donation I have received so far. Thank you so very much.
