Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Our Brave little Fluff, Ewan, fell asleep in our arms for the last time. He was our world, our everything. He fought gallantly  from his very first breath to his very last and was a true inspiration to us and everyone who knew him.

We were wrenched from our family home every time Ewan was dangerously ill, and transferred to the Great North Children's Hospital, miles from home. The Sick Children's Trust provided Mike and I with a home from home at Crawford House, a boarding house in the grounds of the hospital, so that we could be as close as possible to Ewan when he was being cared for on PICU and we weren't allowed to stay overnight with him. It was our lifeline at a time of great need... on more occasions than I care to admit.

A sleep, a shower, a change of clothes: to return to Ewan fresher, stronger, rested, more able to care for and love Ewan in his hours of need

Everyone is asking if there is anything they can do for us in our profound and devastating grief. Do this for us. We want Ewan's beautiful life to mean something to others. We want Ewan's beacon of hope to shine for future generations of babies and children who need their parents to be strong for them. 

Please help us to share Ewan's love.
