Vicki’s Story

Inspirational mum Vicki Evans has taken on numerous races to raise money for Hope House Children’s Hospices, who have been there for her daughter Poppy and their whole family. Poppy was just 5 years old when she was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition but with the help of Hope House they are taking one day at a time and making the most of life.

“Hope House helped me to accept how things are going to be. We had our bundle of joy and she still is our bundle of joy – it’s just different” says Vicki, “The worst part of Poppy’s condition is that it can cause sudden unexplained death. So we try really hard to live each day with as many smiles as possible. Poppy has taught us so much because she grabs life with two hands and really lives it.

Karl, Poppy’s Dad says “Hope House is like having an extra member of the family who we can turn to, who knows exactly what our lives are like and how to help. We know if we hit a crisis they will be there – we are not alone. Life would certainly be a lot tougher without Hope House.”

Vicki has run in lots of local races to raise funds for Hope House Children’s Hospices as she knows firsthand how vital the money is. “I’ve run the Chester Half Marathon and the Chester Metric Marathon in the past, the metric was one of my favourite races and the goody bag was the best ever!”

Runners who pull on their trainers and stride out as part of the Hope House & Ty Gobaith team will be making a huge difference to the lives of families just like Poppy’s
