My story

Hello!

In October, I am throwing myself out of a plane from around 12,000 feet in order to raise money for Sarcoidosis research. I'm a bit scared so all of your support is much appreciated!

As most of you will know, my mum has suffered with this illness for a long time. The symptoms and the illnesses occurring as a result of sarcoidosis are particularly detrimental to the quality of life, meaning that sometimes every day activities are a challenge. The charity relies on fundraising to conduct research in order to find a cure and improve treatment.

The British Lung Foundation matches any donations to sarcoidosis, so whatever I raise will be doubled which is amazing!!!

About Sarcoidosis:

Part of the reason that I am doing a skydive is to raise awareness around sarcoidosis. For people that have the illness - so that others understand what they are going through. And also to educate people on the symptoms. So I have attached a link which explains the illness in more depth - https://www.sarcoidosisuk.org/information-hub/faq/

SarcoidosisUK is a tiny charity that exists to provide support and information for people with sarcoidosis, and to fund research into a cure for the condition. It is currently the among the world?s largest sarcoidosis research funders, and is passionate about helping to find a cure. SarcoidosisUK is dedicated to funding at least one major piece of research per year, and will continue to do this until a cure is found. Please donate - we rely on your support to keep going!

A portion of the sponsorship raised may be used to pay for part or all

of my jump cost. A minimum of 50% of what is raised will go to my chosen charity - it will be much more than this.

Well done Iz, am proud of you - something I would love to do, but I think my history of being accident prone probably means I shouldn't do it, so you can do it for both of us!
