Three weeks tomorrow my husband of 21 years Andy Headworth and our 16 year old daughter Bethany, will be throwing themselves of a very,very high dam in Switzerland !! Why ? I hear you ask ...... Well,in December 2007 we lost Andys brother,David, and Uncle to Bethany and her older sister Kelly, to the horrible illness Leukaemia .He was only diagnosed in the April of that year,just before his 40th birthday. He had got engaged to Marlynne,the love of his life,and they were expecting their first baby in the August (Dara was born on August 10th-he will be three this year and David got to spend four months with him) He had a hell of a fight on his hands and one that he fought bravely right to the end (he even managed a laugh with Andy just before he died,always joking ...)
From that day we vowed to help anyone who was going through the same as David and our family, to raise as much money as possible for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research,so that they can do as much research into this killer disease and fund a cure.
So this year ,to go one better Andy (hopefully wearing the Crocman suit,but not the head,for safety reasons) and Bethany are going to do the Goldeneye bungee jump at the Verzsace Dam in Switzerland ! Now,I don't know about you,but I reckon that deserves a sponsor or two !!
So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE sponsor them at these just giving pages :-
........ and help stop other families going through what we went through.
