  • Some of our previous fundraising has enabled hospitals to hand out #superhero kits to children at @oxfordhospitalscharity, @leicestershospitals and @rmchcharity. .
.
The purpose of these kits is to reward and comfort younger children who are undergoing treatments, such as intravenous medications.
They receive a cuddly toy monkey (wearing a Thinking of Oscar T-shirt) as a gift, as well as a birth certificate for their new soft friend. Their kit also contains a shield which covers the medication which hereon in is referred to as their super serum, a Super Hero cape, comic and a collection of bravery bands which they accumulate as they undertake various procedures.

  • It's Oscar's Birthday tomorrow. He should be six. As usual we will have a low key day, saving all of our thoughts for him. We don't write these posts for people to feel sorry for us. I think it's helpful for people to understand, for other folk around them who might also be affected one day, this grief thing doesn't go anywhere. If there was one thing that any of our social media friends could do for us on the back of a post like this it would be to tell someone they know about the charity. We have got an amazing event coming up later this year and we are actively seeking corporate support and cyclists to hop on a bike for 100 miles #TOO500 (http://www.too500.co.uk). The impact will be amazing. We are raising money for Thinking of Oscar which in turn will be shared amongst 6 children's hospital charities. Together we are raising awareness of the need to invest in child health. Together we are raising £500,000 in order to invest in first of a kind, innovative projects which will improve child health.
.
.
I read a beautiful post this evening which seemed particularly evocative on the eve of Oscar's birthday. .
.
"Someone told me once, that one day we will be together again. They were wrong. He is the babies that survived, he is the children at school who remained in the womb and defied the odds, he is the research that goes on in his name to this day. He is everywhere. But most importantly, he is the watcher of his siblings, my greatest listener, my comfort, my Birdy, my boy. He is with me every single day, because you see, he never left." https://www.spikeymama.com/blog/2017/10/9/baby-loss-what-may-help-you-as-a-parent-and-advice-for-those-supporting-them/
