My story

[p]Please help me raise some money for a great cause close to our hearts.[/p][p]I always like to do things a little different, so this year decided to attempt to break a Guinness World Record. [/p][p]I will be dressed as a unicorn for the fastest man as a mythical creatures category. To get the record, I'll need to complete in under 4 hours.[/p][p]Now for the important bit. [/p][p]I'm raising funds for a local charity based in Bristol called the Jessie May Trust.[/p][p]Jessie May supports families who have children with life limiting illnesses. Children who will sadly not live to reach adulthood. Families with a terminally ill child often find juggling round the clock care with everyday tasks an overwhelming struggle. Parents and their children cannot do the things you and I take for granted; things like having a job, going on a family outing, or simply being able to sleep through the night.[/p][p]As many of you know, Char and I recently became parents to our gorgeous twins Evelyn and Jackson. [/p][p]During pregnancy, we had a few little scares with Jackson along the way, then at birth baby Evelyn spent her first few days in intensive care.[/p][p]Luckily they are both healthy and well (and did I mention gorgeous).[/p][p]But that isn't the case for everyone. Some peoples worst fears become their reality. [/p][p]Here's what Jessie May can do to help...[/p][p]Our nurses visit these families in their own homes, providing expert care for terminally ill children. These visits allow parents to step away from their caring responsibilities for a few hours, enabling them to pop out to the shops, help their other children with their homework or simply to sit down and eat dinner. Our service is so special because it enables a parent to have a break, confident that their son or daughter is in the care of someone who understands the complexities of their medical needs, and crucially [b]someone they trust[/b]. Jessie May is providing a vital service in the heart of the Bristol community – no other organisation in the Bristol area offers this type of care, including the NHS.[/p][p]In addition to respite care at home, Jessie May also offers nurse’s telephone support, bereavement support, group respite days and family fun days. Jessie May also provides end of life care, giving families the option for their child to die at home, in their own bedroom, surrounded by the things and people they love.[/p][p][br][/p]
