Our beautiful daughter, Saarah, passed away in March 2011 aged four. She left a huge gap in our lives but also some wonderful memories.She was truly a miracle: born 11 weeks early, weighing 3lb 3oz, she overcame meningitis twice before she finally came home after 3 months. Then aged 1 she had pneumonia and a serious secondary infection. Remarkably she bounced back and for the next 3 years she enjoyed good health, before she suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in her sleep.
Saarah's Fund has been established in her memory. In the coming months and years, we hope to take part in lots of fundraising events to raise money to help other children like Saarah lead happy and fulfilling lives.
Last year we had our Syria Incubator Appeal. Thank you to everyone for making our appeal such a great success - we raised nearly £15,000 to purchase 6 incubators at the Iman Hospital in Syria. These incubators are now providing life-saving care to over 200 babies every single month.
Oxford Half Marathon - Incubators Without Borders
We know first hand how important an incubator can be in ensuring that new born babies receive the life saving care they need.
That's why I've decided to run the Oxford Half Marathon to raise funds for our new appeal - Incubators Without Borders - so that we can provide incubators for new born babies wherever they are most needed. For example, in July, we received a request for more incubators, this time for a hospital in Sana, Yemen.
Each incubator costs between £2,500 and £4,200. I know it is a large amount of money, and I know there are many other very worthy causes out there, but anything you can give to support this appeal will make a huge difference, to babies in Yemen and elsewhere.
Please would you also consider setting up a regular donation so that we are able to respond more quickly in future.
Thank you for supporting Incubators Without Borders.
