My story

[p]Our beautiful baby boy, Teddy Grant sadly passed away on the 19th October 2015 at the tender age of 1. Teddy had been having complex seizures but was leading a healthy and very happy life otherwise. Sadly, Teddy had a prolonged seizure which resulted in a cardiac arrest consequently leading to severe damage to his brain. Tragically the damage that the seizure caused meant that we had to say goodbye to him.[/p][p]To try and help other families in similar circumstances we are supporting the Daisy Garland charity who support families in similar situations to ourselves. We worried endlessly about Teddy having a seizure in the night and we hope that the money we raise in Teddys name will help fund monitors to support children to lead normal lives to monitor their seizures.[/p][p]In memory of Teddy and to try and raise as much money as possible for a great charity I’ve decided this year to try a slightly different challenge. Of course, I’ll still be in the water but rather than compete another long distance I thought I would challenge myself at completing a 1-mile swim in under 30 minutes. Just to note the only caveat is we have to complete the swim in under 30 minutes otherwise they will fish us out!! I decided that the Padstow to Rock sea swim would be the ideal venue for this and of course I have roped a few others into joining me.[/p][p]The Padstow to Rock Swim which is held in the heat of Summer was an obvious choice because Padstow is very close to my heart as not only have the generations of my mum’s family holidayed there for many years and we also took Teddy for his first seaside holiday. It was the first time Teddy we took Teddy to a beach and boy did he love it, especially the sand, he really enjoyed eating it for some reason!! He also experienced Crabbing during that holiday, a Grant family tradition! These precious and happy memories of Padstow and surrounding area make it the perfect challenge for me and the team.[/p][p]Money raised will go The Daisy Garland where Charlie and Nikki have asked for it to help fund equipment to monitor children’s seizures so that they can lead normal and safe lives.[/p][p]Please give whatever you can below for this fantastic charity in memory of beautiful Teddy Grant.[/p][p]Good luck to the whole team and thank you for all of your continuing support![/p][p]#Swim4Teddy[/p]
