7 Years of Brightest Star

Out of Heartache and Hope Brightest Star was created on Valentines Day 2013, less than 2 months after I lost my beautiful boy Jack.
My heart aches watching this video.
 
My boy is so full of life and happiness and 8 years on, I still can’t believe that he’s gone and that a virus killed him 💔
If love alone could have saved him, he never would have died.
 
As a charity, I had no idea just how much Brightest Star would grow and the demand there would be for our services 💔
Hundreds of bereaved families have been supported through our counselling, support groups and telephone support.
 
Sadly, we have issued over 1000 memory boxes and there is not a day that passes when I don’t receive a message, email or telephone call from a bereaved parent, grandparent or sibling.
 
No matter what is going on in the world, Death and Child loss doesn’t stop and that’s a reality that nobody wants to think about. It is our job as a charity to support families on this horrendous journey as there is very little support available elsewhere.
 
To every single person who has supported Brightest Star over the last 8 years, thank you.
Without you, we could never have made this far xx
