Lisa Ventura – Frankie’s Mum & Founder of Frankie’s Legacy
Frankie was a small pebble dropped into the lake of life…but his ripple will be felt forever…
My blog “Frankie’s Legacy: Love, Loss Grief & Recovery” focuses on raising awareness of early pregnancy loss, stillbirth, neonatal death, cleft lip/palate and rare chromosome disorders.
My much loved and much wanted son Francesco “Frankie” Enrico Ventura was born sleeping on 29/11/2013 and had a severe cleft lip/palate, talipes and an extremely rare chromosome disorder (chromosome 15 duplication syndrome).
This blog focuses on my journey as an empty armed mother, and about how I am surviving stillbirth, celebrating Frankie and creating his lasting legacy as best I can.
