My story

[p]'The loss of a child is a loss like no other' - On 5 November 2018, my world changed forever when my free spirited, adventurous, thrill seeking Josh died working in Greece at just 25. He had so much to look forward to and he had so many plans for the future, it was heartbreaking for me and the whole family, especially his sister & best friend Lauren. I will always be a proud 'mumma' to both my children.. [/p][p]Without this amazing charity 'You Raise Me Up' who have provided enormous support and free counselling to parents like me by parents (the counsellors) who have been through this themselves, I don't know if I would be living the kind of life I have now - one that makes my son and daughter proud. In their spirit I have vowed to keep 'living and not just surviving' (Josh's mantra in life) and so I am working, living by the sea and taking on challenges and new experience that sadly he won't get to do. [/p][p]Those of you who know me, know that I'm not the sportiest or most adventurous person and also with two knee replacements the landing might be interesting but life is for living! Please honour Josh and this charity by sponsoring me whatever you can afford...[/p]

You astound me with your courage . This is a wonderful thing to do; sadly many more parents will loose a child and this charity will help them to get some help in a time of darkness and sorrow.
