Weʼre raising £500 to Help a young girl with Addisons disease get the help she needs...
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The most hearbreaking thing anyone will ever experience is discovering that your child, the one thing in your life that means the world to you has a potential life threatening disease...
This is what has happened to one of the biggest influencing personalities of my childhood - Ex Birmingham City star Paul Devlin.
As I have completed a number of Skydives and Parachute jumps, but wanted to help... I have organised a sponsored skydive to help raise funds for young Annie...who suffers with Addisons disease. Every penny of your donations will go to Annie and her fundraising campaign, with an overall target of £20,000. Here's a little info on the condition...
Addison's disease (also known as primary adrenal insufficiency or hypoadrenalism) is a rare disorder of the adrenal glands. About 8,400 people in the UK have Addison's disease. It can affect people of any age... symptoms range from:
+ fatigue (lack of energy or motivation)
+ muscle weakness
+ low mood
+ loss of appetite and
+ Weight loss
+ Increased thirst
Over time, these problems may become more severe and Annie may experience further symptoms issues, such as Adrenal Crisis...
This is a lot for a young girl to contend with... so with your help - even if it's just £1 (less than a coffee or hot chocolate) will go a long way to support this young lady....
Thank you for your support. And if you'd like to partake in the jump - please get in touch
