A Rochester woman with severe M.E. has brought hope, support and comfort to over 500 young people.
Jessica Taylor, who is chronically ill with severe M.E., set up Share a Star in October 2010 to bring the sparkle back into the lives of severely unwell children and teenagers. Since starting the charity, Jessica has helped over 200 ill youngsters and 300 of their siblings, by organising day trips, sending personalised gift packs with positive messages of hope and providing bereavement support.
Through Share a Star, Jessica aims to make each youngster feel special by sending them unique handmade stars, featuring their favourite things. Along with the stars, the young people receive personalised poems and special gifts to help bring a much needed smile to them and their families.
