    Story

    Our lovely friend Charlotte has beaten cancer twice but it's come back for a third time and she has just received the devastating news that it has spread across the surface of her brain and down her spinal cord. But Charlotte, being Charlotte, is refusing to be beaten by this thing - and we are now working together to write up her bucket list of things she wants to do while she's receiving yet more treatment for this horrible disease. So I'm setting up this fundraising page to raise money for her to do all the crazy things she's ever wanted to do! Our first idea - OK - my first idea - was a sky dive. To my horror, she agreed straight away - and said how much she was looking forward to doing it with me! Now I've done a sky dive - stared death in the face - and used up one of my 9 lives! It was the most amazing experience - but I survived - and have no wish to tempt fate by doing it again!!! So please donate money for CHARLOTTE to do a sky dive - and let us know if you are mad enough to want to join her!! If nobody volunteers, I'll do it (and will pay for mine!) (yes, right, I should pay to probably die. Twice!) But most importantly, we need to raise £230 for Charlotte to do it - so please give generously!! We're also fundraising for the other stuff on her bucket list, which is still being written :-) It will include things for her and Mark to do with her lovely twins, who must be finding it so hard to see their beautiful Mummy being poorly. We're thinking Peppa Pig World - and all sorts of other fun stuff.

    I've never known anyone with as many friends as Charlotte - she's just one of those rare people who is loved by everyone she meets - so let's all dig deep and raise money for a whole heap of exciting stuff that she can do with her lovely friends and family to help her get through the next round of gruelling treatment.

    Love you Charlotte!! xxxxxx

      ....... sorry - these updates are limited to 550 characters - nowhere near enough for a pair of chatterboxes like us! So Charlotte has had a chemo injection into her spine on Monday and tomorrow (Friday) she's starting radiotherapy for the tumours on her brain. She's still struggling with her face, which is very swollen, and she's finding it hard to see, eat or drink. But always positive - she can still drink wine :-) Keep smiling Charlotte - we all love you loads xx

      Hi Everyone, First of all, a HUGE thank you to you all for your amazing generosity and lovely messages of support. Charlotte and I have been absolutely bowled over by how kind you have all been and it has given Charlotte a huge boost. We just wanted to let you know that we haven't forgotten you all and that Charlotte will be writing her bucket list soon! But we wanted to wait until she had started her next series of treatment and see how she's getting on with that before we make plans.......

      I don't personally know you Charlotte but I know Mark from school. Also many friends have shared your story. No one should have this once let alone a third time. Keep fighting the fight xx
