Hey there!

I am raising money for a charity based in London that helps people suffering from a neurological condition called Ataxia. On the 25th November of this year I will be challenging myself by skydiving for the first time from over 10, 000ft.

Ataxia has impacted my family greatly, with my grandmother, dad, aunt, uncle and cousin all being diagnosed with the condition Ataxia SCA 3. My siblings and I have a 50/50 chance of having been passed on the condition from my dad. The type of Ataxia that my family suffers from usually starts to show in a person’s late thirties to early forties. The symptoms share many similarities with Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis. There is currently no medication or cure for any of the existing types of Ataxias, which results in the symptoms deteriorating over time. I would like to raise as much money as possible for the charity Ataxia UK so they can continue to support the 10,000 people that are known to have a form of Ataxia in the UK. The charity does not receive any money from the government and are funded by donations so any amount you can spare will make a difference. Thanks for taking the time to visit this page and hopefully you can make a donation :)
