My story

[p]I was introduced to WAY - Widowed and Young only 2 weeks after losing my husband Alex in August 2018 in a motorcycle accident on his way to work. I will never forget saying those words to our children… ‘I’m so sorry… but Daddy died this morning in an accident’ knowing that I had to break their hearts and our lives would never be the same again. I was seeking support for our three children, and someone was kind enough to say ‘but what about some help for you?’ and gave me the contact details for WAY. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I registered with WAY that same day and I can only describe the support I have received as being my oxygen mask! I have been able to travel this journey with those who ‘get it’ no matter what point I’m at in my grief, and that in turn has given me the strength to help our children through the worst time of our lives. It has enabled me to seek advice and support when those around me genuinely could not empathise, even though we were surrounded by people who love us. I didn’t know anyone else who had become a widow so young, and I felt lonely and isolated. [/p][p][br][/p][p]WAY offers peer to peer support, both online and in-person, to anyone widowed before their 51st birthday. Currently we have over 4100 members and that number is growing constantly. I am delighted to be running the Virtual London Marathon 2021 and fundraising for WAY. If Alex could do an Ironman triathlon, I can do a marathon and if you can spare a few pounds I would be very grateful. I know he’d find it hysterically funny I’ve finally agreed to it, but he’d be my biggest cheerleader. [/p][p][br][/p][p]#BeMoreAlex as you never know what tomorrow brings! [/p]
