AUNT’S CANCER BATTLE INSPIRES DARING CHARITY FEAT

Elaine leaps from plane to help give something back

A DARING woman from Catchems Corner near Blythe Bridge has leapt from an aeroplane in thanks for the life-saving treatment received by her aunt.
Elaine Thomas, who works as a medical secretary at the Royal Stoke Hospital, volunteered herself for the challenge in support of Cancer Research UK as a way of giving something back following her aunt’s illness.
She told the Times and Echo: “My aunt, Emma Moss from Fulford, was diagnosed with endometrial cancer last year and had a massive operation followed by radiotherapy but thankfully she is currently doing very well.
“I wanted to give something back  as it were and also raise money for a fantastic cause.”
The 45-year-old took to the skies on Friday 26th May and has so far raised a staggering £1512 with donations flooding in both on and off-line.
“I was hoping to raise about £600 so this is a lot more than I expected really.
“I decided to do a skydive because it was a little bit extreme and I thought people might be more willing to make a donation for something like this.
“The worst part was hanging over the edge of the plane just before we jumped out but I was very nervous the day before too.
“Once the parachute was open and we were floating down to the ground it was amazing.  It was a beautiful day and you could see for miles.  When I got to the bottom I wanted to do it all again!”
If you would like to contribute to Elaine’s fundraising total you can do so safely, online at: www.everyclick.com/elainethomas.
