On 12th November 2016 my Daughter's Elouise's life was turned upside down when her step-mother Danni lost her battle to Cardiomyopathy which essentially is an enlarged heart 3 short months after diagnosis.
Not only did my Daughter loose a second Mother, but twin 2 year old boys and two beautiful girls lost their Mother and Mark, Elouise's Dad became a widow at the age of 33.
Danni's condition started with a simple shortness of breath and a routine check up at the Doctors that quickly turned in to long hospital stays and time away from her family prior to her diagnosis and sudden death just 5 days before heart surgery was due.
Their loss and bereavement has rippled and shaken the foundations of their everyday lives and as a result, her children will have limited and in the case of the twins, have no memory of the love and warmth their Mum gave them endlessly due to a condition that with more research can be treated and hopefully one day, eliminated with fundraising like this.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking time to read our story and paying tribute to a wonderful Mother and friend.
Forever in our heads and hearts...
