I’m doing this by taking part in the Dare for Rare Sky Dive for Findacure. To make this happen, I need YOUR help to raise £500 for the charity.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; min-height: 14px;"[gt][span=color: #044a90;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p] [lt]h1[gt][b][span=color: #4a0490;]What is Findacure?  [/span][/b][lt]/h1[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal;"[gt][span=color: #044a90;]Findacure is a small UK-based charity that helps improve the lives of people with rare diseases. Rare diseases are life threatening or chronically debilitating diseases that not many people get; and so the people who get those diseases often find it difficult to get any support or help, and often face the double stigma of being diagnosed a disease… that not many people know about. Although they are rare, there are some 6,000-8,000 known rare diseases – and around 1 in 17 people are affected by a rare disease at some point in their lives. To put that in perspective, that’s around 3.5 million people in the UK…[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; min-height: 14px;"[gt][span=color: #044a90;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal;"[gt][span=color: #044a90;]That’s a lot of people who could do with some help! Findacure helps brings these people and their families together to build communities; and also works with patient groups, hospitals, drug companies and other stakeholders to help develop treatments to improve their lives.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; min-height: 14px;"[gt][span=color: #044a90;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p] [lt]h1[gt][span=color: #4a0490;]Did you know...[/span][lt]/h1[gt][span=color: #044a90;][ul][li][lt]span style="font-size: 12px; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial;"[gt][b]3.5 million people in the UK live with a rare disease. 80% of these are genetic.[/b][/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 12px; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial;][b]Of the 7,000 recognised rare diseases, only 400 have licensed treatments.[/b][/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 12px; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial;][b]75% of rare diseases affect children.[/b][/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 12px; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial;][b]30% of children with a rare disease will not live to see their 5th birthday.[/b][/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 12px; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial;][b]Rare diseases are responsible for 35% of all deaths in the first year of life.[/b][/span][/li][/ul][lt]/span[gt][ul] [/ul][lt]h1[gt][span=color: #4a0490;]How can you help?[/span][lt]/h1[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal;"[gt][span=color: #044a90;]If you would like to see me jump out of a plane… here’s your chance.
