Hello everyone and welcome to my fundraising page for Shine Cancer Support. :)
I'm 32 years old and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2016 and as a result I was lucky enough to be introduced to Shine. They are an amazing charity that offers invaluable support for young adults in their 20's, 30's and 40's who have had a cancer diagnosis.
My initial plan with this page was to raise £3600 to pay for a sponsored trip up Kilimanjaro with £1000 of that going to Shine. Unfortunately due to ongoing treatment, side effects and other cancer associated health conditions I have been ruled out on medical grounds. However, all of the amazing £3569 that I managed to raise with all of you lovely people's help is sitting safely in Shine's bank account and will be put to very good use I can assure you! I will endevour to complete a less risky, nearer to home walking related challenge at some point in the future so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
In the meantime, because I was unable to take part, two of my fabulous best friends, Laura and Megan have decided to do their very own challenge for Shine in July....a 15,000ft skydive! I have always wanted to do a skydive so I am absoloutely gutted to have been ruled out of this one too but I will be as involved as I possibly can by taking on the role of 'chief fundraiser' and taking lots of photos on the day! So this page is now focussed on hitting our joint new and improved target :)
The cost of the skydive is £284 each and they both have a fundraising target of £600 to reach which includes this amount, so I have updated the page's target to £4800 to reflect that.
Come on people dig deep please and thanks loads in advance.
