Story

[p]Team Marnie-Moo is a very special team of runners, all driven by the memory of a very special, beautiful and strong little lady called Marnie.[/p][p]Marnie was born with a heart condition called hypotrophic cardiomyopathy and Noonans Syndrome. She fought very hard, whilst being the drive behind a significant campaign for Organ Donation. As you will probably be aware, the law will changed shortly making all UK citizens organ donors unless they opt out. This law change is significant and we strongly believe hundreds of lives will now be saved. Marnie lost her fight at a mere 5 months old. Marnie donated her heart valves after she died and we have since been notified that she saved the life of a 10 month old baby boy AND an adult male. [/p][p]Daddy Nick, Mummy Amy, big brothers Jonah, Coby and Bonnie have vowed to keep her legacy going by giving back to those that supported them so tremendously during their stay in hospital.[/p][p]The Brace family are a very lucky family to have such wonderful friends and family, many of them have joined them in their efforts to keep Marnie's legacy going. Marnie really did have such a big impact on everyone she came across.[/p][p][br][/p][p]So 'Team Marnie-Moo' Was born in 2017 thanks to 'Uncle Ali and this team has grown and just keeps on growing. [/p][p]The charities we are raising money for are ECHO and Lennox. ECHO supported our family greatly during the months we lived in London when Marnie was at the Evelina. Our son Coby was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of 4 months old. This unrelated disease hit our family hard, again. Another battle to face within 2 years of losing our precious Marnie. Lennox supported us in so many ways through chemotherapy, surgery and recovery. We are happy to say that Coby has been clear of cancer for a year and is thriving, an incredible little boy we are lucky to call ours. [/p][p]Lennox Children's Cancer Fund. This charity has been going since 1992 and helps to make a positive influence on the children diagnosed with cancer. Vicky and others at the charity are like family.[/p][p]ECHO, the Evelina Children's Heart Organisation. A very special charity that help families with children who suffer from a range of cardiac conditions. They support children and young people with heart conditions and their families, who have been treated by Evelina Children's Hospital networks. ECHO is regarded by many as a second family and for the Brace family this couldn't be more true. Diana and Sam are still in our thoughts very often. [/p][p]Please help support 'Team Marnie-Moo' in their fundraising. The team will complete Milton Keynes Half Marathon/Marathon/Superhero Fun Run/ Rocket 5k/Marathon Relay in all colours of the rainbow. We welcome anyone who wants to join us and have a team made up of old, new and unknown friends! [/p][p][br][/p][p]Lets help change the lives for precious children like ours. [/p][p]For the bravest, most resilient, handsome big brother at only 4, my Jonah. [/p][p]For the strongest, most beautiful girl, my Marnie. [/p][p]For the toughest, happiest, gorgeous boy, my Coby. [/p][p]Our little princess Bonnie who will learn all about her awesome siblings! [/p][p]With love and thanks, Amy and Nick Brace x x x x x x[/p]
