Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

As you may already be aware, our daughter died after only 8 hours and her opportunity of life was taken away from her. Great Ormond Street was where she was going to be sent to for treatment and where she went for a Post Mortem. It is also the place where they treated Simon when he was little to remove a brain tumour. The amazing hospital treats so many children to give them hope and a chance in life. Please dig deep and make a donation in memory of our daughter Jessica Harrison. Your donation will help give another child the oportunity of life that every child deserves.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Our Message:

Little Jessica’s hand was clasped around my forefinger.

She was perfect, beautiful in every way, with thick dark hair and a button nose.

She was everything we always wanted as we stroked her soft skin.

Jessica would have been a perfect playmate for her big sister Rebecca.

She has touched the hearts of so many, but only lived for a few hours.

The hope and chance of a life was cut short.

We held her in our arms as she passed away, so sad, so innocent, so beautiful.

Sometimes life is so cruel.

This was so heartbreaking – a moment we will never forget.

Now we want to lay her to rest, somewhere safe, somewhere we can visit and take her sister to.

Our daughter, a sister, a niece, a granddaughter.

We are so sorry darling that we could not save you.

We will always love you,

Mummy, Daddy and Rebecca.

Sleep tight our little angel.
