Poppy was born very, very poorly, and Sophie and Steve, her incredible parents, were told that she very likely wouldn't survive the night.
On 29 May Poppy will turn one. A whole year. A whole year of proving the doctors wrong and being bloody awesome.
Poppy is a wonderful baby girl - she is a joy, who lights up the room with her beaming smile, who smashes every limit the experts say she'll have.
Poppy's Dad and a team of his friends are doing a sponsored bike ride to raise money for the ward that cared for Poppy, who kept her alive and who did the liver transplant. They have a justgiving page here - please, please pop on and sponsor - even a pound will do, even a pound will make a difference and will make Poppy and her family so happy.
Every penny will make a difference to the ward and the team and will contribute to equipment that will save other little lives, and will keep families together.
No amount of money will repay the team on the ward for the incredible work they did, nothing can repay people for saving your baby's life, but if enough people read Poppy's story - which, by the way, was in their local paper today - and donate a small sum it will show just how much it means to the family, and to everyone who knows and loves them.
I love this family so much, I think they're just incredible and they are such an inspiration.
Please follow the link, read Poppy's story again and do what you can to sponsor the boys or pass the link on. They would all be so, so grateful.

It took the nursing staffeight hours to stabilise her condition so she could be transported to Manchester Royal Infirmary's Intensive Care Unit. Her parents were told to accompany her in the ambulance as everyone feared she would not make it.
