I am undertaking a sponsored swim on the 20th August in aid of my very good friend Jan who has recently undergone an aweful life changing experience.

Jan's story started when she went to hospital for a routine operation. After many complications, operations and a few close encounters with death she miraculously pulled through. Sadly though due to those complications Jan had to undergo yet more surgery to have one complete hand, one partial hand and both feet amputated after Necrosis had killed all the tissues to these areas. The one thing she most craves is her independance and that is why I am doing a sponsored swim of 217 lengths, to help raise some money for adaptations to a car. You may ask why 217? well I hope to swim 1 length for every mile that we live apart in hope that one day she can drive up herself to visit.

Jan was once a Nurse herself and has always had caring professions since then, I hope that I can raise the money for her as a return in kindness for some of the great work she has done over the years.

Please help raise some money and raise Jan's spirits too, any sponsor amount will be greatly appreciated.
