My Story

Once again the three of us have decided to run in the Auckland Marathon as a part of team Starship in memory of beautiful Juniper. Starship are so amazing and we would really appreciate your support and donations towards this great cause. - Toni, Simon & Jayne xo

Juniper was born on the 6th of March 2017 and had a whole team ready for her at Starship Hospital. She had been diagnosed with a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia at 19 weeks gestation, and then later into the pregnancy a hole in her heart. However when she arrived it became clear that there was a lot more going on than the initial diagnosis. Juniper also had other symptoms that pointed to a genetic disorder. On the 10th of March she was diagnosed with the extremely rare Donnai-Barrow Syndrome.

All of this was just too much for her little body and on the 11th of March our precious Juniper grew her wings.

During the 5 days we spent at Starship Hospital in the PICU, they took such amazing care of Juniper, us and all our family. We met some amazing people who were so dedicated to our sweet baby June, and all the other children at Starship Hospital. We wanted to do something to show them our appreciation and to help others that go through similar situations. And we wanted to do it in Juniper's name.
