Rosemary Sky Dives for CANCERactive 
Rosemary’s account of her thrilling experience!
On the 18th October 2008 I started my fundraising by training for a sky dive at Diss in Norfolk!  Unfortunately it was FAR too windy to jump but after 10 months of bad weather and life getting in the way I did it!  I've never been so petrified and excited at the same time!  I had to remind myself to enjoy the experience!  I left the plane at 13,000 ft with 2 instructors teaching me to skydive.  After freefalling for a minute, at 5,000ft I was on my own and pulled my parachute.  I had to steer myself back to the landing area and managed a safe landing on the fields.  I’m still grinning as I write this the next day!  I had the photos taken to prove that I’d done it after such a long wait! 
I’ve chosen CANCERactive www.canceractive.com as it's a charity that's really in tune with my approach to health.  They provide well researched information on Complementary cancer therapies and Alternative cancer therapies as well as orthodox ones and the latest news on all the causes of cancer and cancer prevention, a real second opinion to help you beat cancer.  They help people build Integrated cancer therapy programmes (sometimes called holistic cancer programmes) - using the best of the best -  which some doctors believe can increase your personal odds of cancer survival by up to 60 per cent.  
My sister Heather, who inspired me to do this fundraising, sadly died on 29 March 09.  CANCERactive was a continual source of inspiration and information for her when she was having treatment.
