Story

PASIC is a charity that my dad raises money for every year by arranging a golf event. Usually I give him some sponsor money for his event in support as it a hugely worthwhile cause.

This year he has decided to raise money for his charity by jumping out of a plane!!!!! And instead of asking me to sponsor him, he asked me and other family members to jump out of a plane with him. Lots of laughing face emojis followed on the family whats app chat and swift messages declining the offer.

For some reason, I thought, why not! Eek!

So here I am, sharing my Just Giving page in the hope that I may receive some sponsorship to send on to this awesome charity once I have completed my 'dive'!

All the money raised will go to PASIC. The charity PASIC provides emotional, practical and social support for families of children and young people with cancer in the East Midlands, with the aim, that no family in the East Midlands faces cancer alone.

Since, signing up for the sky dive a few months ago, I have been learning a lot more about this amazing charity and its history. It started off as a parent association in 1977 (the year I was born) created by a hospital consultant and a group of parents to support the needs of families dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of a child with cancer. They felt that whilst children were receiving the very best care from the clinical team, additional support was needed for parents and families dealing with the devastating impact of childhood cancer. This group of parents, with the help of staff, set up a self-help group to support others in the same situation facing treatment for childhood cancer. Over the years, this group has developed to what is now PASIC and over that time have helped hundreds of children at Nottingham Children’s hospital and currently support around 300 families.

I can not even imagine the pure heartache and anguish parents have to go through during these times and hope to raise some money to support this charity.
