Team story

[p]Hi there![/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to stop by this page and hopefully donate to our fundraising efforts.[/p][p]We are taking part in the Scum Run in May 2014 to raise money for Tommy's the Baby Charity in memory of John's son Casey Jacob Cliffe who would have turned 10 in June 2014. As 2014 marks his 10th birthday this opportunity really allows the chance to make it extra special and to give back to the charity that has supported us over the last 10 years.[/p][p]It is also something that John has wanted to do for many many years so it just seems like fate that Scum Run having chose Tommy's as their charity partner![/p][p]For anyone that doesn't know, Casey was born unexpectedly at 20 weeks in 2004. The reasons for this is his mum, Katrina suffers from a condition known as IC (incompetent cervix) which means without medical intervention she is unable to carry children to a safer stage in pregnancy. Unfortunately you can not find out about this condition until a loss occurs but ongoing research is ensuring that subsequent pregnancies have a positive outcome.[/p][p]In John and Katrina's case this is definitely true, having delivered their eldest daughter Stevie at 33 weeks in 2005 with the assistance of a cervical stitch and a month of bedrest and their youngest daughter Jaime at FULL TERM with a cervical stitch, progesterone injections and 10 weeks of bedrest![/p][p]More information about their experiences can be found here [gt] [url=http://www.tommys.org/Page.aspx?pid=222&frsid=14&uppid=15]http://www.tommys.org/Page.aspx?pid=222&frsid=14&uppid=15[/url][/p][p]Tommy's plan to use the money raised from Scum Run to open a fourth research centre dedicated to early miscarriage, which affects up to 250,000 parents (and something John & Katrina have also experienced) each year across the UK. We are close to achieving that goal and the extra money we raise through Scumrun will help us to get there and make real change.[/p][p]About Tommy's[/p][p]Tommy’s is a charity that exists to save babies’ lives. [/p][p]They know that the loss of a baby at any time is one of the most devastating experiences that any person can go through and tragically, it is all too common. 1 in 4 mums and dads will lose a baby during pregnancy or birth.[/p][p]Tommy’s believes this is unacceptable, which is they exist: to help change this. They fund pioneering medical research into the causes and prevention of miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.[lt]br /[gt]The three research centres which Tommy’s fund are St Thomas' in London, St Mary’s in Manchester and the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. Each centre focuses their research efforts on different issues relating to pregnancy.[/p][p]Tommy’s also provide a free pregnancy information service for medical professionals and parents-to-be. Their information service is informed by their medical research and includes a dedicated telephone midwife service, a comprehensive website and free books and leaflets dedicated to promoting health in pregnancy. Through Tommy’s work, they aim to halve the number of babies that die during pregnancy or birth by 2030.[/p]
