The Elizabeth Loury Ward at Southend Hospital is a 22 bed ward that specialises in oncology, haematology and palliative care, it has a special place in my heart. 15 years ago next year my brother Paul and I lost our darling Mum to cancer.

People raise money all of the time for research into medical advances into fighting cancer as I have done many times in the past. 

To mark 15 years I wanted to change the focus, while all of the time doctors, nurses and scientists are helping the fight against cancer, most of the time families are just trying to keep their chins up. 

Trying to take each day as it comes and to find a little ray of light in their darkest moments. Trying to smile when tears threaten, trying to keep hope sometimes even when there is so little.

The experience Paul and I had on the ward was one of comfort, if it is possible I would say that one of the saddest parts of the hospital actually is also one of the nicest. There is an atmosphere there that words cannot describe, one of peace and of love and support.

It's the ability of the staff to help to achieve a little bit of normality in what is an upside world. I understand the facilities for patients and their families have come a long way in the last 15 years. But there is always room for something more, to enhance the day room, to give more resource to helping those who are grieving and struggling to cope with the enormity of what lies ahead. To making what is a beautiful place even more special. To help families make more memories, some of which while bittersweet may be the last they have.

2018 also would be our Mum's 70th birthday (3 days after this jump), so I can think of no better way to mark her birthday and raise funds for a worthy cause at the same time than to throw myself out of a perfectly good airplane strapped to another person!

Please can I ask you to dig deep and help raise funds for this cause, any amount you can spare would be so gratefully received.

Elizabeth Loury Ward will receive your money quickly and easily and if you are a UK taxpayer an extra 25% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Thank you so much from myself and my brother,

Emma xx
