~Team Vylet Skye~
Welcome to our fundraiser page for the 12th annual Walk for remembrance and Hope!! Last year was my First walk and we were in the top 3 for raising the most donations! I want to thank you all for your help and support!! As a lot of you may know my husband Justin and I welcomed our beautiful baby girl Vylet Skye Gordon to this world on February 12th, 2015. She was a healthy full term 8lb 2oz gorgeous baby!! We were in Love! March 25th, 2015 our world came crashing down, that perfect baby of ours had passed away a day shy of 6 weeks to SIDS. It was very sudden and shocking to us all! The pain is truly unimaginable, a pain that is like no other. I was in a dark place and did not know how I was going to live without my baby. I was reffered to heartstrings which is a private non profit support group for pregnancy, stillborn, infant and child loss. I attended an 8 week program with a room full of wonderful Strong women and men who had gone through the unimaginable. I no longer felt alone and had so much support and love from others that had also lost a baby. It then became my goal to live to keep my daughters memory alive! Rather if its through talking of her, sharing pictures, icluding her in holidays, her Birthday and ofcoarse the walk for remembrance and hope to honor our babies! We are competing in a friendly competition again for Team Vylet Skye to raise donations that goes directly to heartstrings to benefit future hearstrings participants like myself and offer support and counceling through the most difficult times of grief. I am asking for a donation of whatever amount you can give, every little bit helps even if its just $10.00. Thank you again for you time and support, It means a lot!
