My story

[p]As most of you know we were blessed with beautiful twin boys back in 2001. Sadly things started to go wrong when I was 20 weeks pregnant but with the support of my obstetrician we managed to hold on til 29 weeks when our boys were born and looked after in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. [/p][p]Sadly despite a really strong fight our darling Samuel passed away after 21 days. Joe fought on and had a rough 12 months but has grown to a fine young man who makes us proud everyday!!! [/p][p]As their 18th birthday approached I felt I had to do something to honour our Samuel. As luck would have it a few amazing individuals at my school decided to run the Great South Run around this time... fate I thought!!![/p][p]So, on Samuel’s 18th Anniversary training started...I can’t tell you how hard that first run was but hey I persevered. This morning I managed 10 miles and now I believe I might just make it round 😆. [/p][p]In memory of Samuel I would like to raise as much as I can for BLISS - an amazing charity for babies born prematurely or poorly and cared for in intensive care units. If you can donate anything at all I would really appreciate.[/p][p]Thank you 💙[/p]
