Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have walked the Yorkshire 3 peaks before, a good few times as a challenge or training for a challenge. So it wasn't an option for a sponsored event...that was until my friend Dan suggested doing it 5 times in 5 days...

So on the 14th September 2022 Dan and I will set off on day one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks 5x5. We will repeat this until Sunday 18th and our 5th trip around the 3 peaks.

I am doing this for Tommy's as my wife and I have suffered 4 miscarriages in 3 years, the first in June 2019 with our angel Wallace born sleeping at 14 weeks. We lost our 4th angel this April. Tommy's has been a great source of support and information during a difficult time and we have a referral to speak to them for advice and options to support if we decide to try for another baby. The fear of something which should be a joyous occasion is heartbreaking,  hearing those words 'We're pregnant' once filled you with joy, now fills you with dread and fear, every scan drains you and makes you feel ill as you hope and pray that the silence from the nurse doesn't come as they struggle to find a heartbeat, followed by the words no one ever wishes to hear, there is no heartbeat.  

I hope that by supporting Tommy's more parents will hear that they have a healthy baby and not have to go through this trauma of miscarriage and still birth. x
