My Story

At the beginning of 2018, my beloved mother Debbie Varcoe sadly passed away aged 61. She is remembered as a kind, funny, caring, devoted and loving mum who would do anything for her three children - Jessica, Brayden and myself. Debbie and my father Darryl had their life turned upside down when their new born daughter passed away hours after birth in 1987. Whilst she wasn't stillborn, it had the similar effect of a life being taken away before it had a chance to be lived. It impacted them both significantly and it is an experience that no parent should ever have to encounter. At the Sydney Running Festival 2018, i'll be raising money for Stillbirth Foundation Australia. This will be in memory of Debbie and all the joy she brought into my life, along with my sister Kassia, who never had the chance to grow older.

About my cause: Stillbirth Foundation Australia

Our mission is to significantly reduce the incidence of stillbirth through research, education and advocacy.

Our strategic goals include:

- Supporting researchers to generate new knowledge about stillbirth and encouraging the translation of research into practice.

- Supporting the community and health professionals to change behaviours that will help to reduce the incidence of stillbirth

- Extending the reach and impact of the Stillbirth Foundation Australia by being a leader and advocate in the field of stillbirth.
