It’s often said that tragic events change you, cause you to take stock on where you’re at, what you want to do and what’s important. Having lived through a tragedy myself I can completely identify with that, and whilst much of my life is still as it was before Jess became ill, I have vowed to carry on some of the bravery that Jess showed, and spend more time pursuing the things that I love doing. One of those is poetry, and I’m particularly proud of my first published poem for the Morley Arts Festival. Here’s hoping it’s the first of many! 😀
Nice to see Jess pop up on the Children with Cancer social media posts today. Whilst we can’t help Jess anymore, we can potentially help others by sharing her story.😀
A huge thank you to Pomfretian for their kind donation to the Team Jess fundraising and for publishing a centre page spread about the Team Jess campaign in this month’s edition too. Jess has been in two publications now and they say things comes in threes. I wonder who could be next 🤔. To read the article visit the Pomfretian website.
One of the things that’s kept us going since Jess passed away is telling her story, in the hope that we raise awareness and funds to help other people going forward. Today Jess made her first debut into the world of local magazines. Thanks Ackworth Arrow for supporting Team Jess!
Today Jess’ story was published on the Children with Cancer UK website. I really hope that sharing our story will help other people, be it reminding people of why fundraising is so vitally important or perhaps helping someone else who’s in our shoes. If you want to read the story or find out more about the great work Children with Cancer UK do, then you can see the story here.
