We raise funds to help us provide support to local kidney patients & their families


On August 22 I’m doing a sky dive in memory of mum and dad Kitty and John Davies who both passed away from kidney failure within two years of each other. Watching dad go through it was heartbreaking but to then watch mum go through it was devastating. They were both so brave and I want to give something back.

I want to support the renal unit at Doncaster hospital were they both went for outpatients appointments and treatment, they both spent time on ward 32 as inpatients which is part of the unit and dad had his dialysis on the dialysis unit there. I am so grateful to the staff on the outpatients ward who were always so lovely and good with them both making sure they understood what was happening and why, but also looked after me, as I broke down from hearing the same thing said about mum, that I’d heard two years before about dad. We as a family are grateful to the staff on ward 32 who looked after them both and were so thoughtful when we went to say our last goodbyes after dad passed away on there. I‘m grateful to the staff on the dialysis unit who looked after dad when he went for his dialysis there, three times aweek.

i want to give to kidney rearch if I can stop someone and their family going through what we went through as a family, not once but twice. Watching them both suffer from the effects of the disease, like odema, shortness of breath, nausea, as well as other things, the effects the medication, treatments, them having to stop or change medication for blood pressure, diabetes and other illnesses due to it affecting their kidney levels, the treatments they endured, especially dad, who had regular iron infusions as he stopped absorbing it and dialysis, three times a week, mum was offered dialysis but refused it,
