Story

I’m jumping with North London Skydiving Centre to help raise funds for this very
worthwhile cause. My jump is scheduled to take place on 11/03/2023 (weather
permitting) and if you could please spare a few pounds to sponsor me it would be
much appreciated. Thank you so much for your support.

In 2013, I was diagnosed with the autoimmune condition Wegener's Granulomatosis, also known as Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA) when I was just 16 years old. I was very overwhelmed with all the scary statistics and information on google...however Vasculitis UK helped me understand more through their website and their charity continues to be a source of support for patients and their loved ones. 

I've been in remission now for 6 years and can generally manage well day to day thanks to the life saving treatment I received in those early years. One of the main reasons I chose the charity 'Vasculitis UK' is because they fund research into Addenbrookes Hospital, where I was and still am looked after by a team of specialists. 

I've always wanted to do a Skydive and now it's coming up to the 10 year anniversary of my diagnosis in February/March 2023 so it just felt right. I mentioned the skydive to my mum who is absolutely terrified of heights, she literally cries in cable cars and when she has to drive over a bridge...I jokingly asked her to do it with me and she said YES! Having her support means the world.

Thanks for reading and for any donation that you can spare, it really means a lot. <3
