LOSING a baby is a harrowing experience for many couples, who are left with many unanswered questions.

For many parents the intense grief after losing a baby can cause overwhelming, possibly frightening, emotional and physical reactions.

They may feel life will never be normal again.

Knowing more about how others experienced the grieving process may help.

Therefore, we take our hats off to Kevin Wilson who is aiming to raised £3,000 for charity Tommy’s to help others who are going through the trauma he and his wife suffered.

Losing weight, while nowhere near as emotionally challenging, can also be a desperate battle for many.

The fact Kevin has channelled his energies into losing five stones in a year is an inspiration to all.

We wish him well in his fund-raising campaign and half-marathons runs to raise awareness and cash for the charity.

We are sure his story will be an inspiration to many of our readers as they welcome in the New Year.
