Story

On the 11th December 2018 my.mother was sadly taken from us as a result of cardiac arrest. She was a fit and healthy woman who had a zest for life and laughter. It was not only a difficult time it being Christmas but also knowing that Christmas was her favourite time of the year made it that little bit harder, however we still celebrated like we knew she would want us to. Holding up Christmas traditions and bringing family far an wide together although it did not fill that hole we all had in our hearts.

Dee was a much loved manager of the British heart foundation  furniture store in northfield Birmingham, where she worked for 5 years. She built some friendships and was loved by all staff and volunteers there. The love people had for her was shown at the time of the funeral and wake, and we couldn't of asked for or met nicer people who had nothing but love for our mother.

It has been a difficult time for myself, family and friends of Dee/ Gez. I have personally been struggling with the loss and wanted to do some thing that ment some thing to me and bring my mothers memory back in a way I know she would love, and in her words I can hear her saying it's a "wicked" idea. 

We always talked about my adventures and the things she did in her past, and we use to talk about all the adrenalin "scary " things you could do and this was one. Well mum I think it's time toTake the leap and do it for both of us and I couldn't think of a better way.  

Her birthday is on October the 5th and I thought what a better way to feel close to her and even be with her then to float through the clouds feeling her all round me. 

So Mum this is for you Yes I will probably be having words with you on the way down. Lol but I cant wait.. 

So guys i need you support to make this dream come true, but also help prevent people from feeling the same heart ache as me and my family and who knows we might need help in the future. 

If I can raise a minimum of £500 it would fund a new doctor who might be that one person who can see symptoms. Not just the normal tingling in right arm but what if they can see deeper, Maybe a change in nature/mood, colour of skin etc. Why can we not see signs like we do for a stroke.... well with this Were we could help that doctor research and find out and prevent our loved ones slipping away by some thing we are still working out. 

Lets do this together !!
