My story

[p]Hi my name is Kez I’m currently 39 (soon to be 40) I am plus size short ass with little legs but I have a big heart. I am a wife to my very own Mr Darcy; Darren who loves me just the way I am. I am also a Mother of six having 5 angel babies and one incredible rainbow 🌈 my 5 year old son Osian.[/p][p]i completed the London Marathon last year for The Miscarriage Association after deciding to break the silence of my own heartbreak of miscarriage. It can be said that I did not quite have the experience I wanted at London last year but I managed to raise awareness of this amazing charity.[/p][p]The road to parenthood was a hard journey for my husband and I and experiencing multiple miscarriages has been heartbreaking. It was something that we suffered mainly alone but he has always been my rock. However, during my journey to VLM 2019 and being open about our experiences I came to realise that it was not just our pain but our families have felt the pain as well. For something that affects so many Miscarriage is still a taboo subject but there is no shame and it is important that we talk about it and grieve and celebrate our angels. [/p][p]I have decided that I want a rematch with London, I want to show that I deserve my place and I am worthy. I took on London last year to show my little boy that if you reach for the stars anything is possible and I stand by that. I also want to celebrate my angel babies as even though they were not with me for long they touched my heart forever.[/p][p] After London in April I received thousands of messages from all over the World from people who have experienced the heartbreak of miscarriage. Your stories and your angels have touched my heart and London 2020 will be for all of you too!![/p][p]So I will run the 26.2 miles of VLM for my 5 angel babies and for all the angel babies of those I know who have been affected by miscarriage. I will run to raise money and the profile of the subject and the charity.[/p][p]And most importantly I will run VLM for my Husband whose love and support has gotten me through my dark days of living with miscarriage and has given me hope that after the storm has passed a rainbow will come.[/p]
