Offering a lifeline after
loss to bereaved parents.
We are Aimee & Ryan Conroy, the founders of Luna's Fund, created in memory of our beautiful daughter Luna Valentina Conroy who was born sleeping on the 29th November 2017.
“Our charity Luna’s Fund stands for ‘Love & Unity for Neonates & Stillborns.'”
As a result of our first hand experience, and due to an uncomfortable lack of aftercare on offer, we felt compelled to embrace upon a new journey. With our new found purpose, we chose to create a legacy for Luna, whilst having something we could channel all of our love, time and energy into in her absence.
Our charity’s aim is to offer an array of services for families to use, in order to create new memories & to look forward to their future, their ‘new normal.’ We have constructed these ideas based on our own experience of what we would have loved to have been offered at the time; a lifeline after loss.
“Our vision came to life when we launched on the 1st March 2018 before our dream came to life when we gained registered charity status on the 11th July 2019.”
The long term goal for the charity is to own a safe haven retreat. This will be a comfortable space for families to grieve, to remember and to create new memories. One being in the UK, ‘Luna’s Lodge’ and the other being in the sun, ‘Luna’s Legacy’.
We welcome you and we thank you for being a part in Luna's story.

Read our story...
A 23 year old first time mother who chose to grieve through the letters of a keyboard to share the raw reality of losing her daughter with the world. This ten part blog is raw, moving, emotional and uncomfortable but above all it is encapsulating, endeering, humorous and a must read.
Supporting real families
“What you are doing in Luna's memory is incredible and I can only imagine how proud she is of you. We can't even begin to explain how much that weekend meant to us and how perfect the timing was. The week leading up to it really was my lowest point since leaving the hospital without Ralph because of his funeral being the day before and worrying about how we would cope. We got through that week knowing we had something at the end of it where we could go and be away from everything familiar and just be together.
We will always remember it and we have already talked about trying to go back annually or something in memory of Ralph, and maybe even one day to be able to bring a future baby with us too. We had no idea that we were your first family that you have helped, that feels really special! What you are doing for people is truly amazing!"
