About

In 2016 I had to end my pregnancy of five months because my little girl was too poorly to go full term. 
It was the single most devastating thing I've ever had to do. 
She is missed every single day and although she isn't physically here, her life remains just as important to be remembered as any other member of my family that had a good innings. 
I came across www.sayinggoodbye.org via the wonders of social media, and the support they provide to women, and men and their families is invaluable. 
So here's the thing...over the next 12 months, I've agreed to try and raise up to £50k, (along with my blood pressure and anxiety) so this is going to be the mother of all tasks, gawd help me. 
By donating you will be helping to provide support for so many people that have suffered or are affected by the loss of a baby. 
Over the next 12 months, be prepared for me turning up to events, dressed as a butternut squash, singing nessum dorma, whilst zip wiring over a car park somewhere in Rhyl or High Wycombe, or wherever I happen to end up*. 
If you can, please donate, every little helps. 
Thank you. 
*Just to say this is just an example, not an actual planned event. Yet.

This is Lou donating to herself, having received money for an article that appeared in Woman's Own magazine, which I'm now donating my fee from this to my cause.

Lou, reading what you went through for your daughter, I felt very sad, but you did make me laugh at some of your descriptions. Keep on being your lovely, honest self. Might see you in Edinburgh.
