Keech Hospice New Appeal
Families from Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire that have lost loved ones are backing a new campaign by Keech.
Keech's 'Special to Us' appeal is calling on local communities to support them so they can continue to provide care.
Danny and Sam received care from Keech when their daughter Lexi died at just 19 days old- they are now helping Keech to raise money.
Danny Keer told Heart:
"If we hadn't been to Keech i think all memories of our little girl would be in a hospital room, of her with loads of wires and machines and just not nice memories at all. Keech gave us the chance to be a family."
Sam and Danny are now expecting another baby due at the end of the year.
