In January 2014 Melinda and I lost our first child Declan Noah at 26 Weeks, due to HELLP Syndrome. Melinda stayed in hospital for another 5 days as she was so unwell.
Bears of Hope provided the help and support for the both of us (and continue to do so) through this tragedy. Unfortunately a more common tragedy than we thought.
So to say thank you and to give something small back for all the help and support Melinda and I have received and still receiving, I grow my beard to grow awareness.
