Alison jumped for the Cancer Fund of UCLH Charity after her cousin was diagnosed with Non-Hodgins Lymphoma. She had already lost her auntie and uncle to cancer.

Alison: Why I jumped for UCLH Charity

"I lost both my auntie and uncle to cancer several years ago. In May my cousin, their daughter, was also diagnosed with cancer (Non-Hodgins Lymphoma). Since then she has begun chemotherapy and thankfully her tumours have reduced significantly, so we are remaining positive about her ability to recover.

I felt I needed to do something completely outside of my comfort zone and challenge myself. I'm petrified of heights so I settled on a skydive, in the hope that this would encourage people to offer their financial support to a worthy cause.

Although scary it was rather exhilarating too and the views were breath taking!”
