My story

[p]A year ago my daughter suffered the loss of her grandmother who she was very close to. She struggled to come to terms and process the idea of never being able to see or speak to her again. As her mother I felt helpless to ease her pain and the words I said to her never seemed to make a difference. With the support of her school they put me in touch with Simon Says although reluctant to go my daughter attended and found that it wasn't only her struggling with the pain of her loss. A year on and on the 9th July it will have been a year since the grief took over and we are coming through the other side she is able to talk about her grandmother and all the fun things they did together.[/p][p][br][/p][p]As an adult you can handle the grief and process it but as a child its more difficult to understand why their loved ones get taken away from them. Having this support for Paige was invaluable and it has helped her enormously and she will be with me on the 1st September taking the pictures to prove how mad her mother is. So if you could support my charity and this challenge it would be much appreciated.[/p]
