Dan's story

On the 17th May 2009 my daughter Ruby Emily Ashley was still born at 37 weeks gestation. This changed the lives of me and many people around me forever. I cannot begin to explain how this has affected my life, probably more than anyone will ever realise. I have put on a front for so long, I'm not even sure who I am anymore! Raising money to help other people is a major part of what keeps me going. I vowed from the day we lost Ruby that I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to stop this happening to other people or at least reduce the amount of times this happens. I also wanted to help get the people this affects (Parents, families, friends) the support and care they need following the unthinkable.
