Despite living in Milton Keynes I had not heard of the local registered charity Emily's Star until I was asked to deliver a donation of tiny knitted mittens and hats. Emily’s Star raise awareness of Trisomy 18 the UK’s second most common syndrome after Downs. and provide neonatal boxes of gifts for mums and their premature babies. The registered charity is named after the founders own daughter, Emily who passed away at 26 days after an emergency cesarian section and having been found to have Trisomy 18. Unlike Downs Syndrome, Trisomy 18 is usually fatal, less than ten percent of babies getting to see their first birthday but some living past their tenth.
