Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
This year celebrates 5 years since Tommy spent 5 weeks in NICU so I am therefore running 5k every day for 5 weeks starting on the 7th July.
Tommy was delivered 8 weeks early by emergency c-section due to my ill health with preeclampsia, he spent 7 days on life support in intensive care, during this time he was on a ventilator to keep him alive, he then spent another week on a high dependency unit in NICU until he was finally transferred onto a special care unit for a further 3 weeks, he was oxygen dependant for his entire stay in NICU, to add to our worries Tommy also contracted meningitis whilst in Intensive Care, needless to say he had a rocky start to his life but is now a healthy thriving little boy that loves life.
The cots for tots house kindly provided our family with free accommodation in their house opposite St Michael's hospital, the house was not just a roof over our heads, Anne who runs the house provides a shoulder to cry on for every single parent that comes through the doors, a safe haven and support network during our time of need, the house is run entirely on donations so any spare cash you could donate would be greatly appreciated 😘 cots for tots do not just provide accommodation to parents in NICU they also raise cash for vital equipment for the unit!
Thank you for reading our story and please donate!
