My Blue Heart is a local charity set up to encourage understanding and compassion towards everyone who has to live on without someone they love. It aims to give bereaved people a way to show others they are grieving through wearing a heart shaped badge, in forget-me-not blue, with a red heart in its heart. The badge conveys the message that `I carry your heart in mine’ and always will.
They are intended for anyone who has suffered a great loss, for those who are recently bereaved or who just need to show they are missing someone special that day. It is hoped that the hearts will become a well recognized symbol of bereavement, providing a way to communicate loss and give others the opportunity to show consideration and support.
The charity was founded by the Gower family who lost their daughter Jess to primary bone cancer, aged 14 years, in December 2010. All profits will be used to support programmes for bereaved children, currently East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), CLIC Sargent Social Care Team atAddenbrookes and the Nicky’s Way Programme run by St Nicholas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds.
