Shine Through The Gloom
I care not two hoots for Rugby matches, but found this incredibly moving. Lizzie is a professional singer, and in May, her husband Danny, aged 29, collapsed and died, 4 minutes into a rugby match in London. The post mortem found a congenital heart condition nobody knew about. SInce his death, Lizzie has worked to raise awareness of this condition. [article here]
Over £230,000 has been raised, to hep Lizzie and her twin babies- and she said that singing the anthem last Saturday was her way of thanking people for all their support.
God bless this brave young woman, for turning the tragedy in her life into something which will help to prevent a similar thing happening to other sportspeople.
