The awful news about Jon took all of us by surprise. I am looking to support Wendy in her drive to bring about more positive outcomes for other families in Jon’s name.

Sharon Shaw


I’ve known Wendy for over 15 years as a friend and colleague. During this time I’ve met her family and Jon particularly when he was at high school. I’m a trustee because I believe out of tragic circumstances something positive should happen, I want to help Wendy raise awareness and help other families so they may never know such heartbreak.
