Story

I'm taking to the skies on 4th February 2017 and will complete a tandem sky dive to raise funds for my 2 year old godson Emerson.

On 15th August 2016, life changed dramatically for Emerson and his family due to a cyst on his spine. Where the cyst was positioned on his spine means Emerson still has no feeling in the lower part of his body (C6/C7 T2- Tetraplegia).
He is now classed as disabled-incomplete and will require many years of rehabilitation, it is unknown if Emerson will be able to walk again but the doctors are positive and say that there is a good chance of Emerson regaining his mobility, through physio therapy and the use of specialist equipment.
He is already able to move his arms and now his family will concentrate on working on his legs /lower trunk and bowel management, but this requires time, equipment, physio therapy and hydro therapy, which is a limited service through the NHS.
Emerson will never gain 100% mobility back but his family are not giving up hope.

All money raised will help towards Emerson's future. Thank you so much for your support - your donation is really appreciated.
