My story

On the 30th of October I will be skydiving from 10,000 feet to raise money for the Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust.

 

Aortic dissection kills over 2,000 people a year (more than those killed in road traffic accidents) and is caused by a rupture in the wall of the aorta. This tear then affects the blood supply to vital organs and other parts of the body. Any adult of any age can be affected.

 

I'm raising money for this charity with my girlfriend Molly and her sister Hannah, whose dad suffered an aortic dissection last year. He had an emergency nine-hour surgery, was cared for in hospital for weeks after, and he continues to be monitored for a secondary dissection.

 

11 lives a week could be saved with the correct diagnosis. The Charitable Trust tackles this issue of misdiagnosis, providing medical education and funding for research. This is amazing work that promises to save countless lives.

 

Every donation will make a huge difference to the efforts of this charity and it would mean the world to Molly, her family, and I if you could donate. Thank you so much!!!
