Welcome To Team Macy

On 20th December 2012 we had to say goodbye to Macy. The pain we felt that day as we held you in our arms and kissed you goodbye is still as fresh now as it was then. Every day of your life you fought to stay alive and your legacy will live on through all of us.

Team Macy was created in memory of a special girl who fought with every heartbeat against all the odds. She came into our lives and changed them forever. We will now fight every day of our lives to battle against this shocking and devastating birth defect - the one that kills more children in the UK than any other defect. We will raise awareness so that another family will understand the signs of CHD and know they are not alone on their journey. We will continue to raise money for genetic research so that one day we might even change the statistics of this childhood killer. In Macy's name, to give others a chance of the life she should have had. Macy has taught me so much. And I will always be eternally grateful that I was chosen to be her mummy xx

From Helen

I'm feeling very emotional. When I think back to this day, over 3 years ago I would never have dreamt our futures. You were so poorly. But you were fighting with every heart beat. Every breath. Every wonderful gaze of those beautiful blue eyes.

After you had died, a massive part of us died too. We were broken. I don't think I will ever be fixed.

Yet Team Macy was created - named by the people that followed your journey every day. That prayed and prayed for you to recover. Then prayed and prayed that we might too.

And just 1 month after you had gone we started raising money. Our charity was created. And every penny we raised made me feel we were giving something back. Every penny was in your memory raised by most that had never met you but were inspired by you too. They still are. It's all I have of you now. I cling to it like I cling to your little flopsy bunny that Libby and Sam bought for you a week before your birth.

And so Macy I wanted to tell you that Team Macy, your charity has raised over £50,000

£50130.01 to be exact. And if gift aid is claimed on that it will equate to £64,166.41

And every penny of this money will go towards helping other family's going through similar to us. And hopefully this money may prevent one of them from loosing their child to the worlds biggest childhood killer xx

Well done Macy

You are truly inspirational

Love you all the Bears and always will xx
