Please help our family grieve for our 1 year old son Sebastian who died in a tragic accident.

Main image

On 4 October 2019, we lost our (just turned) 1 year old son Sebastian in a tragic accident at home. Our world has been turned upside down and we are struggling to adjust to the reality that our sweet Sebastian has gone.

He was our 'Mr Smiley' - such a happy baby boy - my mini-me and his 2 year old brother's best friend. He had just learned to walk and was so proud of himself - as were we.

Our hearts are so broken and it has devastated our lives. As his mother, I am completely struggling to deal with life without my baby boy. This is the hardest and worst time of my life and I am living any parent's worst nightmare of losing a child.

Our family would appreciate any contribution you can offer during this heartbreaking time, to allow us to properly grieve for our Sebastian without the need to rush back to work due to financial stresses.

Use of funds

Any donations will help ease the burden we carry right now by contributing towards the cost of our son's funeral, grief/trauma counselling, and our household expenses.
