My story

Our story started in December 2008 when our daughter Abbigail was born , we knew nothing before she was born until she was 3 days old the doctor picked up a heart murmer and we were sent to our local hospital and had to stay over night. The next day we were rushed to Birmingham Children's Hospital in an ambulance, there our whole world fell appart as the doctor sat us down and told us that our daughter had a rare congenital heart defect (CHD) , Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and she needed major heart surgery straight away to survive.

Fast forward 13 years abbie has now undergone 3 open heart surgeries and had 8 general anesthetics. We are now preparing for her 4th open heart surgery which will happen this year.

Young at heart are a charity very close to our hearts from the early days they have been a huge source of support , they do everything from funding equipment to enhance our lives to advice and fantastic days out were we have met many other family's in similer positions , from these events we have now got a huge extended family and have made some lifelong friends .

This type of heart condition abbigail has can not be cured, all surgery is palative and treatment is lifelong but with charity's like young at heart children with these conditions lives are without a doubt made easier .

I wanted to do something completly out of my comfort zone as a way of giving something back and what better way than to throw myself out of a plane .

Please give what you can and share this page to help me reach my ambitious target.

Thsnkyou .

On the 8th of July abbigail had her 4th open heart surgery , unfortunately it has been far from straight forward, she lost a lot of blood and was in intensive care longer than we thought she would be , they were just talking about discharge and she got an infection so 19 days after admission we are still here and they are talking about more surgery.
