On Saturday 22nd July 2023 I'll be completing a tandem skydive from 10,000ft in the aid of SSNAP.
We were very fortunate to have their help following the birth of twin boys in 2018. When they were just 36 hours old one of our sons became critically ill and had to be transferred to the JR to have life saving surgery whilst his twin brother and I had to remain admitted at the hospital where they had been born.
SSNAP enabled our very poorly boy to have his Daddy there with him at the JR every second of every day (and night!) by providing a room to stay in right next to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Almost a week passed before we were all reunited and thanks to SSNAP we were then all able to live together as a family right there at the JR until he could be discharged from NICU.
We will be forever grateful to SSNAP for everything; from the boys lovely little first bears, woollen hats, the coffee and cake, their loving care and of course our 'first family home'!
