Pops BM Ride 50K – In aid of the Eva Rose Trust…

BM Ride 50K (31 Miles)- On Sunday 19th April 2020, Eva’s Mummy, Daddy, Uncle, Pops (thats Me) and Grandad will be taking to their bikes to take part in the 50K ride around Brighton as part of their Marathon Weekend.

We would like to dedicate each mile we do to a loved one who is no longer with us. If you would like to sponsor a mile in memory of someone close to you then please do get in touch. The 19th Mile will be in memory of Eva Rose.

We hope that through our efforts, we can raise awareness of all the Eva Rose Trust stands for and raise a few more pennies. We would be so grateful if you could share our page with everyone you know. Thank you in advance for your continued support.

What is the Eva Rose Trust:
Lou and Tom set up a trust in memory of their daughter, Eva Rose. Their twin girls, Eva Rose and Una Mae were born 12 weeks early at just 28 wks +1 gestation. Tragically, at just 4 1/2 weeks old , Eva developed NEC. After various medication and two surgical procedures, sadly there was little that could be done for Eva and she passed away on 19th March 2017.

Their Mission:
-To provide support to families who are currently experiencing life with a premature baby(ies) in Special Care and families who have experienced losing a baby(ies) due to prematurity and in some cases specifically Necrotising Enterocolitis (NEC).
-To work with the NHS and NICU, SCBU and LNC units to ensure there is consistency in practice when diagnosing, treating and preventing NEC and to educate in areas of need.
-To carry out and fund research into NEC, collaborating with other organisations and medical professionals in the aim of eradicating NEC.

Through this, we will raise awareness of Prematurity, NEC and the reality of living through these experiences. We strive to make babyloss no longer a taboo.
