Story

Me and my twin sister both born too soon..... When mum got taken to hospital 3 months before our due date, the worst outcome happened and Me and Ashley where both born that day after mum was placed into a coma and lost her life 3 days later. At 2lb11 and 2lb9 we were both very tiny and unwell and was hospitalised for months to fight through, blood transfusions, tube feeding and even just general care is not possible without the funding of charities such as Action medical and it all helps go towards saving tiny lives such as ours and I am eternally grateful for the help I received to help us survive. seeing pictures of us so tiny in our incubators and hearing family talk of all the pain it caused hurts, so now after 27 years of being angry for mums death, I thought about the positive outcome that me and Ashley got life and decided its time to give back and help those babies who need it. 

I'm doing this huge challenge alongside my beautiful Twinny and a team of family/friends to show you as 2lb babies we live a life as good as any other thanks to all the help we got,  please can you kindly donate towards this cause and help save the lives of many other babies who are born too soon. Pregnancy complications and premature births happen every day, even just a small donation goes a long way in saving a life. I also ride in memory of all those little angels taken too soon, no parent should go through the heartbreak of loosing a child it breaks my heart and I wish I could take the pain away because loosing a parent is hard enough,  I can't take that pain away so instead I will raise all I can to prevent the loss of a child/parent for many others! 

This means a lot, please dig deep and help out if you can. last but not least..... GOD HELP ME PEDDLING THAT FAR.... BUT I WILL CROSS THAT LINE IN PARIS .... wish me luck haha xx
