Tara's Raising Funds for ACT / NICU

We support Addenbrooke's and the Rosie to change patients' lives.


On 6th July 1999 I came into this world 14 weeks prematurely and weighing less than a bag of sugar. A consequence of my mother suffering a placental abruption, my traumatic birth was the start of a long journey for me and my parents who were exposed to a brutal version of first-time parenthood. This project explores this roller-coaster of an experience. Using a diverse portfolio of material this collection lays open this highly personal and emotional story for the first time. During my 1st 9 weeks of life, while in the care of the amazing staff of the Rosie Hospital, I had over 30 operations leaving a permanent signature on my body and a reminder of who I am and how I got here.

If this story has moved you in any way, we are looking to raise funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
