Tommy’s - the Baby Charity funds research into the causes and prevention of miscarriage and stillbirth.  “It’s almost unbelievable that in the 21[sup]st[/sup] century that one in four women will lose a baby during pregnancy and birth.  I count myself incredibly lucky to have had my little girl when I have many friends who have miscarried, and some have had a number of losses,” said Dawn.  Sharon added that babyloss has no boundaries, “Just look at recent media reports, Dawn Barlow (Gary Barlow’s wife), Amanda Holden and Lily Allen all recently suffered miscarriages or stillbirths.  Whether you are twenty something or forty something, rich or poor, it can happen to anyone.  I know how it feels to lose a baby and I’m running in this event in the hope that others may be spared the despair that I felt. Tommy’s give information and advice which helps you to understand that it isn’t your fault and their funding of research brings hope to many.  Everyone is tightening their belts right now, but even if you can spare just 50p or £1 the charity would be grateful.”  [/b][/span][/p][p][span=color: #993366;][b]For more information on the charities work please visit [url=http://www.tommys.org]www.tommys.org[/url][lt]br /[gt][/b][/span][/p][lt]p style="text-align: justify;"[gt][span=color: #000000;][b][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.

Good luck to you both. The tv news shows that Stillbirth and Miscarriage can happen to rich and poor, 18 year olds and 40 year olds, it can happen to anyone! Have a great day on the run.
