Personal Biography
“Your child dying before you – that’s the wrong way around isn’t it? ‘Will you be all right when I die Mummy?’  The words hit my chest and stomach like a forceful kick.  It was bedtime, we’d just finished story time, and I was tucking her in.  Always a struggle, with the ventilator, bed rails, incontinence sheet, night time medication – not to mention the teddies.  Everything had to be in the right place, EXACTLY the right place, or no one in the house would get any sleep that night.”

The founder of MyLiferaft is Nicola Murgatroyd, her daughter, Faith had Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Together they faced an uphill struggle managing Faith`s different care needs. Not one to sit around grumbling about this, Nicola created MyLiferaft for the benefit of everyone caring, or being cared for.

Nicola also runs the Happy Ponies of the Isle of Wight, who are a fun group of Shetland ponies and a Dartmoor pony!  They can regularly be seen around the island helping both children and adults of all abilities smile through their ‘pat a pony’ days.

Nicola of the interview with Anna: I cannot say Thank You enough to Anna for making the interview so easy; even now I find talking about Faith brings back so many memories and it can sometimes be difficult to find the right words.  It was an absolute joy talking to Anna and if one person heard the interview and feels that MyLiferaft can help them, then I will feel immensely proud.
