Successful weekend for the Snowy River Bears

On the weekend the Bears travelled down to Eden to take on the Tigers in a clash that would send the winner through to the grand final this weekend.
While the sun was out, a cool wind was blowing and picking up as the day went by. The game was expected to be a thriller as last time the two teams played, 10 minutes of extra time was required to determine a winner.

Salvestros take on cause close to their hearts.

After losing five babies over the last three years, Ricky and Kirsty Salvestro are passionate about spreading awareness and raising funds for those who have had a similar experience.
Next week, the couple will take on the gruelling Kokoda Trek, raising money for Bears Of Hope Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, a cause that’s close to their hearts.
When the couple lost their fourth baby, Scarlett, they were travelling in Italy. Finding themselves in a hospital in Rome, Kirsty was in her second trimester and had to give birth to her stillborn baby girl alone. Ricky was not allowed in with her and none of the nurses spoke English, making communication very difficult.
Kirsty describes this as the most terrifying experience of her life.
“I had no idea what to do, what I should do with my baby or what the appropriate steps were following her birth,” she says.
“I didn’t get to hold her, I have no photos and I don’t know where she is. So our aim is to raise awareness and educate all parents so they know their rights and the appropriate steps following this difficult time.”
Losing another four babies in their first trimesters, Kirsty and Ricky say the last few years have been a difficult and life-changing experience.
“We also found it a topic that friends and family would avoid talking about or found it difficult to raise with us,” says Kirsty.
“With all good intentions, they thought it would be better to avoid the conversation than acknowledge it and talk about it, that it would be better if we just move on and try again. I feel passionate about changing that perception. The loss of any baby during pregnancy deserves just as much acknowledgment as any other loss. Friends and family need support and knowledge too, to know how to deal with and approach the situation.”
Ricky and Kirsty have spent the last few months training hard to prepare for the Kokoda Trek.
“I’ve always wanted to do something really challenging like this, and when we saw Bears Of Hope were doing it, we thought it was a great opportunity,” says Kirsty.
“I came across Bears Of Hope when I returned home from Italy. Once I was home I really struggled to find help. I went to my GP and was referred to a counsellor, but they weren’t specialised and I didn’t really feel it helped me. I was doing research into different services and found Bears Of Hope.”
The charity organisation distributes bears, donated by other bereaved families, to those who have lost a child. This allows the donating family to give their child’s brief life a purpose and lasting legacy, whilst filling the empty arms of another family as they walk out of the hospital without their baby. It reinforces the understanding that they are not alone, and that there is an existing community of support. Families also receive extensive information, either in printed or online format, to help them make decisions and memories in hospital, during the memorial and beyond.
To donate to Kirsty and Ricky’s cause, visit kokoda2019.gofundraise.com.au/page/KirstySalvestro.
For businesses who donate more than $500, Bears Of Hope will advertise them on their Kokoda campaign page, the Bears Of Hope website and their Facebook page, which has more than 20,000 followers.
“Cooma is such a generous town,” says Kirsty.
“We have already almost reached our $10,000 goal, which is amazing. But I am more than happy to smash that goal and the more money we can give to this cause, the better.
“My main thing is to share my story to raise awareness and get people talking about this issue so those going through it don’t feel alone, and so parents don’t have to go through it the way we did, not knowing anything.”

Only 6 or so we're not on the books from my understanding! As they were from a recent deceased estate And that's why the police got him, his book work would have been immaculate. I hope all goes well for him!
