Please can I ask you to take a few moments of your time to read through the story of my beautiful and inspiring friend Sophie Rowley.

Sophie is 25 years old and is the mother to her two beautiful daughters, Keira aged 8 and Jasmine aged 5.

On Tuesday 24th July 2018, Sophie's world was completely turned upside down! She was given a diagnosis that she was terminally ill with a cancerous brain tumour around her brain stem (Astrocytoma) Due to this Sophie was told by doctors she had roughly 5 years left to live. As you can expect this news was absolutely soul destroying for Sophie and her family. Shortly after diagnosis Sophie found it very difficult to keep her balance or even walk in a straight line, meaning sometimes she would have to rely on a wheelchair.

Sophie started her intense course of radiotherapy on Monday 6th August 2018 lasting 6 weeks.

Shortly after undergoing her treatment, Sophie was like a new woman. She was back to the Sophie Rowley we all know and love. Funny, bubbly and energetic. She looked absolutely AMAZING!!


In the recent weeks, Sophie's previous symptoms have started to reappear. In result to this Sophie was booked in for another MRI scan on Thursday 11th April 2019. It was the most nerve wrecking 2 hours for Sophie awaiting the results.

I am writing this with a broken heart to say that Sophie was not given the news she had hoped for.

The tumour around Sophie's brain stem has grown rapidly and became very aggressive. The doctors have now informed Sophie that she is now looking at months left to live instead of the first prediction of 5 years.


On Sunday 26th May 2019, I have booked for myself and my stepdad Nigel to do a sponsored skydive with Skydive Northwest in the South Lakes. We will be jumping in honour of Sophie and her girls to help raise as much money as possible to go towards Sophie's dream bucket list she has put together.

100% of all sponsors contributed towards our sponsored skydive will go directly to Sophie and her two daughters.

I would personally like to thank each and every person who has took the time to read Sophie's heart breaking story.

Let's raise as much as we can and make Sophie's dreams come true!

Thank you so much,
Ashleigh Tolson & Nigel McCleary
