Dawn Jeffs: 11 years ago in 2004 my brother died, leaving a child of 23 months old. 

She didn't understand where her Dad was or why she couldn't see him. Our grief was made harder to deal with because we couldn't explain things to her, and as a result she took her frustrations out on her Mum and family. She received help, as she lives in Sweden and they deal very differently with death than here in the UK, and has now grown into a very pleasant, polite, fun loving young lady.

Fast forward to 2011, as a family we were recovering from the sudden death of my partners brother at the age of 48, suddenly with no warning. My partners Nephew and his girlfriend at the time were expecting their second child. I got a call to say that Kelly & Anthony had lost their baby boy.

The problems experienced by my niece years before were then thrust upon Jayden; Kelly's older son, who was only 3 and had to deal with 2 deaths within 2 months. 

 

As this progressed and it became harder for Jayden, Kelly decided she wanted to do something about it and created Jenson's Twinkle Stars, to help other families who find themselves in a similar situation; even if it is someone to talk to.

As someone who feels very strongly about helping others and seeing what my niece had gone through and then Jayden, I was happy to jump on board and start suggesting ways to raise money. 

I was honoured to be asked by Kelly to be Secretary/Treasurer. It is alot of time and hard work, but it is worth it to know that we have made a difference to families and people who are struggling and need to know that what they are suffering is normal, and its not wrong to want to talk or to not talk about it, to celebrate it or not celebrate it. Grief is a very personal thing, and everyone will deal with it differently, sometimes you will need a helping hand along the way to give you ways and ideas on how to deal with your grief and your families grief.
