Janelle and Kate had already been friends for three years when Janelle went into premature labour when pregnant with her beautiful Max. "Aside from my partner and our midwife, Kate is the only person who ever met Max. As the years pass (it will be ten years this November) I take great comfort from the fact that I don’t have to carry his memory alone"
On International Friendship Day we want to recognise the important role our friendships play. As a way of thanking our friends who supported us in our grieving journey, whether they are lifelong friends or friendships formed through Red Nose or Sands; this event is a time to celebrate those in our life who we couldn’t have done without.
The National Remembrance Service - Belonging, today, tomorrow, always, will be held Red Nose Day Eve, Thursday 12 August at 7pm (AEST).
