JustGiving fundraising success stories
Raise more money and change more lives with JustGiving
The sudden loss of Rhian’s 12-month-old son, George, and five days later the death of her husband, Paul, exposed her to the lack of bereavement support for parents. she set up the 2 Wish Upon A Star to ensure other families received proper support.
2 Wish Upon A Star aims to provide every A&E department in Wales with a suitable bereavement suite for bereaved relatives, as well as bereavement support for affected families.
Rhian says, "In February 2012 my one year old Son George passed away suddenly. 5 days later I also lost my Husband Paul. The last 2 years have been so difficult for myself, my two young children and everyone who knew and loved Paul and George.
One of the things that has given me strength is the idea of raising money to help change the support that is offered to bereaved parents immediately after losing a child especially in sudden and traumatic circumstances.
Paul was my husband, my best friend and my rock. I miss him more than words can say. My children have lost their incredible Daddy and its important Paul lives on and is remembered by us all.
George was our little star. Who smiled and laughed all day long. He has left a hole in our home that can never be filled but will be remembered with smiles and fond memories of the year we were lucky enough to share with him."
