Two years ago my whole life changed. A tragic boat accident took away a third of my beloved family, my darling husband Nicko and beautiful 8 year old daughter Emily. It also took the lower part of my left leg. This last loss has always been so far down my list of losses that I haven't really thought much about being an amputee, I was too full of grief for Nicko and Emily. Now I want to prove to them and to everyone else that losing my leg is not going to stop me doing anything. I want them to look down from heaven and be so proud of what I can achieve and know that I will be OK.
I am running this for Emily who was such a spirited gorgeous little thing, but will never have the chance to do anything like this, I love you darling, you will be with me every step of the way.
I have no idea if I can run 10k on my blade but I think we all need to give things ago and not be afraid of failure, my friends may well be carrying me around!
Child Bereavement UK is an incredible charity who have helped me immensely through the tragedy of loss. Please give generously so other families like mine can be helped too.
