Take to the skies
See patient advocate Steve Easton’s sky dive
Planned for September 2014
The story of Rachael and Danielle's sky dive:
“About 3 years ago my Dad was diagnosed urological cancer. I was only 19 at the time and wasn't sure how to deal with it so I started raising money for a local charity that helped my mum and dad out a lot. He was very lucky and after surgery got the all clear.
Obviously you have to keep going for check ups and unfortunately we have just found out that the cancer has returned and spread. It is inoperable and we don’t know how much time we have with him left. He is currently on chemo tablets and when I found out I knew exactly how to deal with it. By raising money once again. This time I decided to face my biggest fear - heights. The whole thing is for my hero - my daddy.”
And Alison Beaver told us a little more about her motivation:
“Having encouraged my children to live by Eleanor Roosevelt’s famous quote “Do one thing a day that scares you”, I knew that if I was to raise money for cancer, then I needed to do something bold and daring myself. So, having recently turned 50, and four years after undergoing extensive surgery and treatment for breast cancer at The Churchill, I decided that a tandem sky jump would be the best way of facing my abject fear of heights, whilst giving something back to those caring professionals committed to beating this disease.
My inspiration for choosing UCARE comes from my dear friend, Clive Stone, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2007 and was on the set up committee of UCARE in its early days.”
