Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 23rd of September 2012, I gave birth to my beautiful little prince Ryan who had sadly passed away in my womb at 19 weeks. That day changed the rest of my life which has become a journey through darkness, light and rainbows. 

I am so blessed with 2 beautiful boys who fill my life with joy, however since Ryan I've had a more text-book miscarriage and a chemical pregnancy. With each loss, it is truly heartbreaking and made all the more difficult with no answers or reasons why. So by raising money for SANDS, I hope that it will help them to continue the amazing work and research they do and one day, perhaps give other bereaved parents answers. 

Taking part in the race is all the more important to me as I'll be running on the 6th anniversary of Ryan's birth. This will always be a sad day for me, but I hope that by doing something positive we can celebrate Ryan and the journey we've been on for the past 6 years.
