Chiara – Barbara’s husband’s cousin – and her husband John sadly lost their first daughter Gemma who was born prematurely. Very sadly, they also lost their second son Massimo after he was diagnosed with a heart defect and passed away after surgery. These parents have somehow found strength to use their insight to raise awareness of congenital heart disease amongst all children. With that in mind, Barbara ran the Ealing Half Marathon, and raised a truly significant sum allowing CHF to support more heart children and families.
A special Fundraising Star thank you to Barbara, and to Chiara and John, and with special remembrance of Gemma and Massimo.
