My story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We sadly lost a very special brave little boy in February last year. For those of you who are not aware, his name was Theo and he truely was an inspiration to all that were lucky enough to meet him. Theo suffered a genetic disorder meaning that his life expectancy was limited, yet he still managed to carry on longer than the experts predicted and gave our family 9 amazing months whilst he was with us. Theo had a positive impact on all that met him because of his determination and incredibly infectious smile.

We were lucky enough to be able to have Theo at home with us when he was well enough and this was helped enormously by the support we received from The Jessie May Trust.

The Jessie May Trust are a local charity who provide care at home for children and babies with life limiting conditions. They also continue to support Theo's parents by running support groups and providing counselling.

We are taking this opportunity to celebrate Theo's life and to remember the many happy memories we are so very lucky to have.

We will be braving the cold weather and stomping 20 miles on the streets of Bristol in our Christmas fancy dress. Please be sure to give us a beep if you see us en route!
