Doing a skydive has been at the top of my bucket list for countless years - much to the dismay of my Mum... My Mum. My favourite person in the world. She is the strongest and bravest lady in the world. She was first diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in October 2014. She went through an operation, chemotherapy and radiotherapy before successfully completing treatment in June 2015. However, Mum's cancer came back in January 2017 and its now incurable. I could write a million words about how awful and heartbreaking our situation is but we prefer to keep going. To keep having a whole lot of fun and make a lot of happy memories.

Mum had been introduced to the Breast Cancer Haven by a friend and has been there numerous times already. The Haven provides a wide range of support to help people manage the emotional and physical side-effects of having breast cancer. One in eight women are at risk of developing breast cancer in their life-time and around 50,000 are diagnosed each year, so there are a lot of people who need The Haven's specialist help and support. On their website you can read more about what they do and hear from some of the people they support.

The Wessex Breast Cancer Haven is an incredible place which is able to offer both Mum and I many hours of support and I am so grateful to them. On Sunday October 8th, I will be preparing myself to take part in a 10,000 foot Sky Dive over Salisbury to raise awareness and funds. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month which makes it even more special and relevant. 
Please help me raise as much money as possible so that the Haven can continue to help us and many, many more women and their families.
