Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In October 2013 my wife Suzy and I had suffered the heart break of our first daughter arriving into the world sleeping. Since that day Tilly has been part our lives everyday and is forever in our thoughts.

Southend Hospital provided us with specialist support including a cold cot allowing us to wake up next to Tilly and spend the day with her and giving us everlasting memories of our beautiful daughter; a dedicated bereavement midwife; and support through our next pregnancy with Tilly's sister Sophia via the new Fetal Medicine Unit, giving us continual reassurances that Sophia was safe and well.

Southend hospital provided us with the support to help us through the initial days we began our lives without Tilly at home with us. 

We are keeping her memory alive by a number of challenges and events, one of which is me running this marathon. With the money raised we aim to put it towards supporting parents in Southend hospital who find themselves in the same heartbreaking position Suzy and I found ourselves in.
