Ten years ago my younger daughter, Sam, lost a much loved son, and I lost a beautiful little grandson - Harry B. During his battle against a brain tumour and cancer he underwent three major operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, shuttling between the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, Great Ormond Street, Wexham Park, The John Radcliffe and the Churchill Hospital.
Sadly though Harry B died shortly before his second birthday at Helen House Children's Hospice in Oxford - the UK's first children's hospice which opened in 1982 and is celebrating it's 30th anniversary this year. Some of you may have watched a TV mini-series that the BBC made about the hospice a few years ago.
In Harry's memory and to raise much needed funds for Helen House, I am doing a tandem sky-dive (jumping from 10.000 feet over Oxfordshire) on the 24th June.
I am hoping to raise as much money as possible for Helen House so.... PLEASE SPONSOR ME !!!!
Helen & Douglas House is a registered charity providing respite and end of life care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions, as well as support and friendship for the whole family.
The two hospice houses are bright, vibrant and positive places, where the emphasis is on living life to the full, even when that life may be short.
