My story

[p]UPDATE - DUE TO THE SUCCESS OF THE FIRST JUMP IN JULY AND THE TREMENDOUS SUPPORT WE RECEIVED AND THE FUNDRAISING WE ACHIEVED, WE ARE NOW GOING TO SKYDIVE AGAIN ON THE 5TH OCTOBER WITH 42! NEW ANGELS AND 6 OF THE ORIGINAL ANGELS DOING THEIR 2ND SKYDIVE. PLEASE GET BEHIND US AND SUPPORT THE WONDERS OF UHCW ARDEN CENTRE IN ALL THEY HAVE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO FOR CANCER PATIENTS. WITH LOVE FROM NICKIE & TRACIE ♥ [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Firstly thanks very much for visiting our page. On July 14th, 2019, 10 crazy ladies and a surprise from our founder Tracie we made a jump from 10,000 feet and raised £1000's for The Arden Centre, we hope to achieve even more by recruiting more angels and they are going to be tandem skydiving on 5th October to raise money further funds, they are jumping in memory of and to support the Arden Centre in hope of supplying new equipment and providing at least 18 new chemotherapy chairs for the suite.The Arden Centre is where all cancer patients in the Coventry and Warwickshire Area go to receive treatment before, during and for the many years that follow treatment and diagnosis. ♥[/p][p]This is our founder "Tracie's" story :-[/p][p]This crazy lot are doing this on my behalf, I originally wanted to do the jump and try and raise 10k myself, like I did 5 years ago when I raised 11.5k for Breast Cancer Care. Unfortunately, I was told in November 2018 that the disease had spread to my lymph nodes and chest wall and could not jump, little did they know at this time I was surprising them regardless. This last week I have been told that the disease has continued to spread and has now gone to the muscle, breast cancer is the muscle is very rare and there is only a 0.2% of this happening. I wanted to give something back, the Arden Centre helps so many, all of us know someone affected or a friend iof a friend. My diagnosis is now very poor and sadly a jump by me could cause a further spread of this debilitating disease. I beg and plead anyone who can get involved does and if you know of any sponsors who would sponsor each of the jumpers I would be so grateful. My last wish is to help others that will follow me in this journey and smash my previous fundraiser of 11.5k. Please share the life out of this post folks. These 10 incredible women, most may I add terrified of heights are doing this for me, for Cancer and for the Arden Centre, our local cancer centre, the one that will help your friends, your family in the future, 1 in 2 now develops breast cancer. Please show your support and lastly for those affected or have loved ones on this journey or have been lost during their journey. #NEVER GIVE UP. Love Tracie xxxx[/p][p]So this is where we all come in - we are going to do the jump for her and ensure we raise enough more than enough money. We have more exciting news to come, all will be revealed as soon as we legally can.[/p][p]Every single £1 helps, we really appreciate every single penny, if just all of your Facebook friends donated just £1, this would make a massive difference to our fundraising.[/p][p]The Original Angels are:- [/p][p]Nickie Brightwell, Nicky Linford, Caroline Turner, Fiona Mills, Jen Love, Lorraine Cottrell, Natasha Cottrell, Michelle Townsend, Lynne Addison, Carmen Curtlin and Tracie Townsend-Mills ♥[/p][p]Jumping on Saturday 5th October will be:-[/p][p]1.
