Hello Sussex Squad!
Today we have 2 special guests Nicki and Mary and we chatted about updates on globalsussexbabyshower Harry’s engagement in Dagenham, his collaboration with Oprah and Apple TV and finally the news around the birth of Baby Sussex.
1. Updates on Globalsussexbabyshower going to may 12th how much was raised
2. So The Duke of Sussex visited an OnSide Youth Zone in Dagenham, as a continuation of his longstanding work in supporting young people and the belief that sport can change and sometimes even save lives. OnSide Youth Zone creates state of the art ‘Youth Zones’ for disadvantaged communities to provide children and adults aged 8 to 19 (and up to age 25 with a disability) with a safe and inspiring place to be for mentorship, support, and guidance.Participation in youth zones is proven to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour by half or more. Earlier this year, The Duke was joined by The Duchess of Sussex in opening an OnSide club in Birkenhead.
3. On April 10, it was announced that Prince Harry is collaborating with Oprah Winfrey and AppleTV on a mental health series that is going to be released in 2020. Both Mrs Winfrey and the Duke are co-creators and executive producers on the project. They’ve been working on it for several months already and had several meetings in London.
4. On April 11, the arrangement around the birth of Baby Sussex was announced by Buckingham Palace. Talk about the press notes that the reporters received.

The podcast is still fundraising for Emmalyn: https://www.gofundme.com/emmalyn-is-h…
Emmalyn has chiari malformation and severe chronic neutropenia! She has been through 29 brain and spine surgeries since the age of 3 and headed for surgery 30! We have been in NYC for 6 months other than 26 days. She has been fighting infection, surgery to redo her cervical fusion, and next up is to remove her cervical fusion and with healing will be another month long trip on NYC! There isn’t a day this little girl doesn’t go through headaches!
Emmalyn has had a long hard fight with Chiari Malformation and its co conditions. She is such a ray of light who fights daily with headaches. Our neurosurgeons are in NYC, so we make many trips there every year. Please if you can’t help please pray for Emmalyn and our family! Thank you in advance!!
And one of our Sussex Squad member sister who is in need of a Kidney and donations: http://give.transplants.org/site/TR/N…
Gwendolyn Best is awaiting a new lease on life. In 2011, she was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Over the years, her kidney function has declined and her illness has now progressed to stage-5. Gwendolyn is on dialysis, which leaves her tired and takes a toll on her quality of life. Doctors say a kidney transplant is critical. Please donate what you can even if it is just volunteering, items, or retweeting nothing is too small! Don’t forget to send us some topics to cover for the next podcast.
