HER heartache is as painful today as the moment tiny Jazlyn passed away - but Bridie Crowley is today striding out to help others.

Her baby girl died when she was just 14 months old after losing a battle with a serious heart condition.

Miss Crowley, of King's Way, Ipswich, said the tragedy ripped her own heart out and devastated the whole family - her two young boys are having counselling to help them overcome the trauma.

But the family have today mustered the emotional strength to organise a charity cycle ride and walk to raise money for the British Heart Foundation - to mark what would have been Jazlyn's second birthday.
