In Memory of my Nephew

On the 24th of February 2014, my nephew Tyler was stillborn. The awful news tore through the family, grinding us all to a halt & filling us with utter sadness. Our happiness & joy of a new baby coming into to the family quickly turned sour to heartache & pain.

Not only did it affect my brother & his wife but the wider family were devastated. As an Auntie, I felt lost & heartbroken & I turned to online resources to help me through this.

The Stillbirth & Neonatal Death Charity Sands provided me with much comfort & support through this experience. The group meetings provided great support & comfort to both my Brother & Sister in Law. Peer support & a safe place to talk helped them through their most challenging point in their lives.

In Memory of Tyler’s 4 year Anniversary I have donated money to the charity Sands & to raise awareness of the great work they do to support families who are affected by stillbirths & neonatal deaths.

  1. I can’t even imagine what yous must have went through, but my heart truly goes out to you all. I’ve heard of Sands before and they’re amazing. The help they provide is second to none from what I’ve heard from others. A heartbreaking but great post to help raise awareness for this charity. ❤️

  2. My condolences. I’m not someone who gets emotional easy, but the bond I have with my nephew made this saddening to me. You are doing a wonderful thing by sharing this and donating to that charity. God bless you and your family!
