Mum of two-year-old cancer sufferer sky dives for charity
THE mum of a two-year-old girl who has been diagnosed with cancer THREE times says she has been overwhelmed with support.
The toddler’s latest diagnosis found tumours in her right kidney and bowel but chemotherapy treatment has been successful.
Kelsey still has a problem with the bone in her right arm which Miranda is hoping can be corrected with surgery.
Miranda held a charity wax at The Perkin Warbeck, a fund-raising family evening at AJz children’s centre and took on a sky dive from £15,000 feet with friends at the weekend.
She said: “We are happy that the chemo has worked and still hopeful Kelsey can make a full recovery – there is light at the end of the tunnel.
“Running these events keeps my mind busy because when Kelsey has gone to sleep and I am home alone you start thinking about everything, so this keeps me going.
“It is overwhelming the amount of support people have given to the events and I am so thankful to everyone. Everyone uses Musgrove Park Hospital at some point in their lives,so the money is going to a good place.”
In total, Miranda has raised £3,144 from all the events – but she hasn’t stopped yet.
She is holding a Christmas family fun day on November 24 at Blackbrook Pavilion from 10am to 2pm and a black tie event at Somerset County Cricket Ground on February 16 next year where there is a three-course meal, live music and an auction 7pm ’til late. Tickets are £35; call Miranda on 07568359142 for more or buy them from the First Bus station in Taunton or the Love of Amy shop in East Reach.
