 (Somehow I returned more and more to facebook. I hope the changes google made, will make google+ more interesting again.)

Last year in June 2012 I was diagnosed with final stage kidney disease. My kidney function only worked at 4% and within a few weeks of the diagnosis I had to begin dialysis treatment four times a day, every day (every four hours) just to stay alive.

Being a healthy young man you can imagine my life turned upside down in such a short space of time. I had to stop working and give up my dream of starting my own business as I spent most of the time in hospital for tests and treatments. Dialysis treatment continued on a daily basis for just over 6 months. I had a number of family members agree to be tested as a potential kidney donor and my dad was the best match. After 4-5 months of further tests it was confirmed that my dad was fit and healthy enough to donate one of his kidney's to me.

On 28th February 2013 my dad and I were both admitted into Oxford Transplant Centre for the life-saving surgery. I am pleased to say the surgery was a complete success and we are now both on the road to making a full recovery. I am ever so thankful to my dad for what he has done - basically he has given me a second chance in life and I will be forever grateful to him for this.

I have signed up to jump out of a plane at over 15,000 feet (2 miles high) with an accelerated free-fall of over 120mph in aid of Kidney Research UK. It's my way of giving something back to the charity which has helped me through this hard time in my life.

I would love your help in raising as much money as I can for this amazing charity and any donations would be greatly received. Please click on the below link to visit my fundraising page which gives further information about my personal challenge and also an opportunity to sponsor me. All donations of any size will be gratefully received and I really would appreciate your help with this.

Thank you for taking the time to read my request and no matter how big or small the donation every little will really help.
