    *UPDATE* Steve, Claire & I are raising money for our Laura & what we do raise can help to buy her the best prosthetic leg around:

    Laura's Story:

    Where do I begin on the news I received yesterday. After finding out the end of Feb I have a tumour in my foot, having an MRI, a horrible biopsy and then told last week it was cancer that they couldn't treat, it's safe to say it's been such an horrendous week for everybody. I had further scans on all of my organs and was finally told yesterday that the cancer hasn't spread anywhere else and I'm absolutely over the moon!! Everybody's positive thoughts and prayers came true 💫💫💫...

    Unfortunately the cancer in my foot is so rare that it can't be treated and within the next 2 weeks I will be having amputation below my knee. Such a bittersweet moment because it's such a massive thing to get my head around but if it means I beat cancer 100% and get to continue living my life then I have to put my big girls knickers on and do it.

    God knows how I'm going to feel and cope but these past few weeks have highlighted how truly amazing my friends and family are and I mean that more than anything! . I never thought this would happen to me but it's something i now have to learn to live with and I'm sure it will give me a completely new lease of life. I've always been brought up to know what's important in life and what isn't and the fact I will have a prosthetic will not change who I am or define me and I will make sure above anything that I have the exact same quality of life and will continue to do every single little thing in the exact same way.Seriously thank you to everyone who's helped and been there for me on this surreal journey so far. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart

      *UPDATE* We have somehow managed to persuade our boss Steve & colleague Claire to join in, in the madness of jumping out of a plane. Claire decided whilst she was sunning herself in Thailand and Steve has had the green light from his wife :) Laura's surgery went well last Wednesday (3rd) and the nurses had her up and about on the Thursday & she was discharged from hospital on Monday 8th May. She has been so strong, please read her blog to follow her new journey, trust me you won't regret it https://bestfootforwardlife.wordpress.com/

      Hi all, Firstly I would just like to say a massive thank you for all your support and amazing generosity. Laura & I cannot believe the support we've received and I know Laura would like to personally say a massive thank you to everybody. Secondly, since I set this page up Laura has been to the prosthetic ward & has been told that a good quality prosthetic leg will cost in the region of £6,000-£8,000 and in light of this I have increased the target. Thank you for your continued support xxxxxx
