The charity was set up by the parents of Jessica May Purrington, a little girl who died at home aged 4 months, surrounded by her family and her nurses. Jessie May has a team of dedicated nurses who provide care to children and families during a child’s life and after their death.

“While Theo was alive our lives were busy with appointments, calls and hospital visits. After he died we were surprised by how quiet things became. But the support of Jessie May Nurses remained constant, and their Bereavement Support was vital to us.”
