Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I would never describe myself as a runner.. I avoid it at all costs! However I have somehow managed to be ‘lucky’ enough to gain a place in the London Marathon and therefore over the next five months my life will solely revolve around running.  The only reason I would ever do such a thing is to give back to Toms ward - the ward which my beautiful daughter came into contact with when she needed life saving surgery as a two week old baby.

I am doing this for every parent who is propelled into the unknown and is forced into a world of medical intervention. However, the stark reality is, without the quick thinking of Wrenn’s surgical team, who knows where we would be. So now is my time to give back in some small way for saving my daughters life. 

Wrenn will be with her surgical team until she is an adult and what started as an utterly terrifying and traumatic experience has become our norm. Wrenn’s nurse, surgeons and every staff member we come and continue to come into contact with on Toms ward are our real life angels and quite frankly I will never be able to express how grateful we are to them for everything they do and have done for us as a family.

So please, if you can spare just a few pennies to donate to what is an incredible cause that is very close to our hearts in ensuring families following in our footsteps continue to get access to the best care possible it would mean so much to my family and I. 

Thank you Toms ward for everything you do for the families who are frightened for the future. 

If Wrenn can go through everything she has I can sure as hell run a goes nothing. This is for you my darling girl.
