Story

Our beautiful daughter and granddaughter Maya died on 2nd August 2012.

She was our world, our life, our everything and she was taken from us in 16 hours. We didn't have time for anything, Maya was 21 months old. We will never forget that day.

Our family will never be the same with out her in our lives. We never want a family to have to go through what we are going through, so until I take my last breath I will raise money for this great cause.
