My story

[p]Hello my name is Jess, I also go by Mrs Cooper and Dr Spalding and to my little sister I am Jess Jess! [/p][p]For those who don't know my family and I were one of the first families the Child Bereavement Trust now UK helped many many years ago. My brother Harry died tragically of cot death and it was only with the help of the Child Bereavement team that my family grew stronger and closer and learned there was life after Harry. We walked the first snow drop walk together united. [/p][p]As my husband and I think about starting our own family, I think about the Child Bereavement UK more and more. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child, my only experience was to lose a brother and with the charities help I moved on and now it is time to give back. [/p][p]I have always said that if I were to run 26.2 miles it would only ever be for the CBUK. Now this year gone I got married to my very supportive husband Simon and I turned 30 eek! I am also in my dream job working as an Obstetric and Gynaecology doctor. I do not say this other than to express to the many people suffering and grieving out there that there is life after a loss, we all just need some help some time to get there. [/p][p]I have experienced the best and the worst of times at work and at home, every sleeping angel just as memorable, special and unique, all taken too early but living forever in our hearts. [/p][p]I will run for Harry and with the support of my nearest and dearest and especially my younger brother and sister who have also taken up the challenge of running London Marathon 2020 we will run, cry, laugh and celebrate together just as we have throughout the years. [/p][p] [/p]
