Leah was born just over a year after the stillbirth of her brother Christopher, which was the worst thing that had ever happened to her parents. Since her safe birth, she has brought the world a lot of happiness, laughter, and love.
She is kind, sensitive, funny, smart, daring, cool, creative, fierce, and her eyes shine with the kind of light that only someone who loves life and all it has to offer can have.
We will always remember Leah. She will always be at the center of this charity, and we will continue to save and change children’s lives in her name.
Patrick and his family want to thank everyone for helping them through this hard time. Instead of flowers, he asked that donations be made to our charity, Lucy Air Ambulance for Children. To give, please click the link below.
