Story

I have chosen to raise funds for Cardiomyopathy.org doing a Skydive On 30th November 2018... and here is why...,,

The photo above is Phillip John Dodd. Phil was cruelly taken from this world (way to early) on 30th Novemver 2017 aged just 46. He was very happily married to his beautiful wife Sarah (also in the photo) who is also an amazing friend to me but is also an amazing Step Mum to his boys aged 13 and 11. He was great friends with his ex wife Lisa who is an amazing mum to their boys and they really are such lovely boys.

Phil is sadly missed every day by all those who loved him.

Phil well he was my best (male) friend, more like my big brother. We had our ups and downs ( as great friends do) but he was fiercely loyal and would be there at the drop of a hat if you ever needed him. You dont have to see someone everyday to be great friends, but just knowing they are there no matter what is what makes a great friend. I can wholeheartedly say Over the years we have been there for one another. I am very proud to call him my friend.

I actually even missed his gloating text last Saturday that Man Utd beat Liverpool. It really is the small things such as this that i miss.

Phil had been diagnosed as having Cardiomyopathy of which there are different types. Phil who was larger than life took the news of his diagnosis very badly, yet he started to learn to live with it and appeared to be making good progress. However, this was shortlived and sadly the effects of this iillness‘ wrath took its toll and Phil passed away as a result.. A complete shock to us all.

So this brings me on to the Skydive to raise funds for Cardiomyopathy.org. I an going to jump (well in truth more likely i will have to be pushed) out of a plane at 15000 feet. So what? , no big deal to some i hear you say. Well it is a big deal to me. I have never really liked flying. Infact I have spent the last 9 years having to take prescribed medication to fly as a result of being s passenger on a plane which had to make an Emergency landing in to a sea of blue lights below. This was after circling in the air dumping fuel and not knowing whether the landing gear would open! I can assure you all ithis doesnt help my dislike of flying. In addition to this I am a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to heights as just looking over a cliff has me quaking.

So for me personally there are two things here for me to conquer (1) getting in to a small plane just to get up to 15000ft in the first place and (2) looking at the ground with a parachute attached to my back with the plane door open and once at 15000 feet being pushed out of a plane heading for the ground.

So everyone rest assured this is no easy task for me. I want to do something that i know Phil would laugh at.... in fairness it would probably be enough seeing me In jumpsuit, harness, helmet and goggles!!

Anyway please sponsor this fundraiser it really is for a very worthy cause.

The date of the jump is on the 1st anniversary of Phils death. The 30th November 2018..

For safety reasons on the day if the weather is deemed unsafe to fly the jump will take place shortly after.this date.
