Mums Unite To Help After Baby Tragedy 2009: Involved Mums

Mums unite to help after baby tragedy

Get involved MUMS who united in support of parents who tragically lost their newborn son have raised thousands of pounds in his memory.
A group of mums who met at antenatal classes in Almondbury rallied round in support of Megan and Matt Paskin, of Shepley, after their first child, Eddie, died at just two days old. The tot lost his life last September after complications at birth left him severely brain damaged. A campaign was set up in his honour to raise cash for St James’s Hospital in Leeds where he was treated before his death. The campaign looks to have reached its &pound14,000 target thanks to &pound3,500 raised at a charity ball, dubbed the Starlight Ball, on Friday night. Megan, 30, said: “Eddie spent two days on life-support while the doctors and nurses at St James’s did everything they could for him.
“Their hard work, along with equipment bought by the generosity of previous patients’ families, gave my husband and I two wonderful days with our son.
