For Taj, Sonny and Lenny

Premmie Marathon Challenge 2022

Help us give premature babies a better chance of survival

This month I will be taking part in the Premmie Marathon Challenge, running 42km over the whole of November. I am doing this for my boys Lenny and Taj, who were both born prematurely and sadly didn’t survive and for my little miracle Sonny, who was born at 25 weeks gestation. We experienced first hand, the miracle of our health care system - the doctors, nurses, the groundbreaking research, and the lifesaving equipment that all contributed to sonny surviving and being here today as a happy, healthy and thriving 3 year old. This is a cause so close to my heart, and taking part in this challenge means I can continue to speak Taj and Lenny’s name, to give meaning to their short lives. It means I can give back to these hospitals that have given so much to our family and I can help to make a difference in giving other premature babies the best possible chance at life. If you could share this post it would be greatly appreciated and if you’re in a position to make a donation or even join our team and complete the challenge alongside me. Thank
You ?

Such a great cause and well done to you both ❀️❀️ As you said, we witnessed first hand how important and imperative NICU is for every baby that’s admitted here,; But also how caring, understanding, knowledgeable, resilient and just fabulous at their job the nurses are. I’m so thankful they helped our babies through their journeys ❀️❀️
