My name is Julie Young and I am proud to be the mother of the bravest little boy ever. My beautiful boy Reagan Jack fought adversity throughout his whole life. Reagan was left with the highest of complex needs after suffering a cardiac arrest at just 9 months old. I was told Reagan was clinically dead but refused to turn off the life support machine.
Miraculously, Reagan did breathe for himself but he was left with severe brain damage, 4 limb ridgedity and unable to swallow. We arrived home against all the odds and that is when our journey began. It seemed that both of us where in a fight for life, with little help from the local authority.
I lost my brave little solider in January 2015. This charity has been set up in his memory and will be his legacy. We became fully registered with the Charity Commission In Jan 2016. This charity Reagan Jack Rainbows has been set up to raise money for any child and their parents who are facing an uncertain future.
You may have seen me recently on Series 2 of Benefits Street on Channel 4. The reason I decided to partake in the series was so I could highlight the problems of getting help in complex situations, that the care system should be changed and loved ones should be given all the help needed to remain in their own homes - because ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE ★♥
I would like to share with you the below video. It means the world to me.
