We are honoured that Richard and Lucie chose to raise funds and awareness for us by taking to the skies and leaping out of a plane each doing a Tandem Skydive, it wasn’t even on their bucket list but has well and truly been ticked off!
Please read their emotional story.
“The last two years have been an emotional roller-coaster for Richard and I.
March 2013 brought us exciting news of a positive pregnancy test and the undeniable joy of upcoming parenthood. Sadly 10 weeks later I was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery with an ectopic pregnancy. We soldiered on through two years of hospital appointments, tests, referrals and waiting lists and early this year we embarked on our ivf journey. Although our first cycle was unsuccessful we kept a positive mind-set and hoped for good news second time round. In July we found out our second cycle worked and I was expecting a little bundle. Bad luck had it that 6 weeks later I ended up in surgery again with a second ectopic pregnancy. Without sounding too cliché I, indeed, am lucky to be alive.
We are slowly bouncing back from our grief and pain. Our journey to parenthood is not over yet. We are keeping a positive attitude and hope that the future is bright for us!”
Take a look at their really amazing video, it left us with goose bumps!
Richard and Lucie have raised a staggering £2,070 which really will go a very long way helping us support women and their families and also help us to continue to educate and raise awareness to the medical profession that treat the cases of ectopics. Thank you both so very much for all your hard work and nerve taking that leap!
