Lianna Mazure is braving the skies to raise money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care and also for brain cancer research. Her jump, organised by UK Skydiving Adventures, Cambridge, was scheduled to take place on 25th October 2019 but Lianna has been advised to delay the jump until she recovers from an untimely back injury. A new date will be announced here as soon as she is given the go ahead.
Lianna is taking on this impressive challenge to raise money in memory of her wonderful friend Paul Radville. Fundraising will continue while she recuperates. Please visit Lianna’s JustGiving page to read her very moving tribute to Paul, who ‘at the age of 30 … was cruelly taken by brain cancer after a long and gruelling battle’. Lianna tells how during Paul’s illness, she ‘watched someone who was the greatest clown I had ever encountered become the most inspirational and admirable person I have ever met’.
Lianna is fundraising for two very good causes: a brain cancer research charity, and Cherry Lodge Cancer Care. Research into brain tumours is very seriously underfunded and Lianna is asking you to help redress this. She is also fundraising to help Cherry Lodge continue to provide its information and support services completely free of charge to people affected by cancers of all types. Cherry Lodge Cancer Care will pass on half the amount raised by Lianna’s Skydive to her chosen brain cancer research charity.
Lianna first heard about Cherry Lodge when she recently attended a local BNI (Business Network International) meeting as a guest, and heard our representative, Yvonne, speak about our services.
