The work they do is invaluable in helping parents, be it an understanding ear or just reassurance that they are not alone. Your donation could be the difference between the phone being answered in someone's hour of need or not PND is a devastating illness that is still not talked about and researched as much as it should be. There is not enough help out there for people who suffer and I want to raise the profile of this charity because they do so much. Please help support this great cause and dig deep for some much needed funds.
A special thank you to my ever loving husband, family, friends and of course I want to raise the awareness of this illness and want to raise as much money as I can in my amazing friend Emmas memory and to help women who are suffering and have suffered with this illness. Emma is always in my thoughts and I want to do this run for her. I know Em will be with watching down on me and will help me finish it as itl be a challenge but cant wait to do it. It is the first time I have ever done anything like this and will definitely be the furthest I've ever run!
I decided that I would run to honour a friend, Emma, who passed away recently. Emma was an old friend and very special person.
I've got some good memories of Emma and I always had lots of fun with her!! With that in mind, if you would like to get involved by donating any amount, all the money raised will go to The Association for Post-Natal Illness. Thanks for all your support. Everyone's been so supportive and I'll think of Emma on a beach somewhere she loved her holidays! Since we lost Emma we have become aware of some astonishing and desperately sad statistics. Post Natal Depression is a silent killer. As a family, we will always keep our memories of our wonderful Emsie alive.
My nephew Harrison is an accolade to my Sister and the wonderful Mummy she was to him. We have been totally overwhelmed by the love and generosity of our family and friends at a time like this. Emma touched so many people in her life, and will continue to do so. For anyone who wishes to commemorate my dear, devoted sister, then please help us provide much needed resources to the Association of Post Natal Illness, and help break the silence on this illness and save other children from losing their Mum, and their families having to learn to live without them.
Emma, I love you always. The world is not as fun without you, but I am lucky to have had you as my Sister. Emma our wonderful daughter. We love and miss you so much its hard to believe another year has passed. Heaven is lucky to have an angel like you. Sleep tight gorgeous girl. Mum and Dad xxxx.

Emma by Joan Grindley | Waterstones
She will be missed. This is so beautiful. I really admire people with this gift for raising the self-esteem of those around them. Being so aware of others is harder for me, and it is helpful to hear these real-life examples of how Sister Thayne did it. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
