Mother's sky dive to raise funds for severely disabled son
A MOTHER’S love was all that could make Georgia Secker jump from a plane at more than 10,000 feet.
The 23-year-old, who lives on Aylestone Hill in Hereford, took on the challenge of a tandem sky dive to raise funds for a charity that could give her severely disabled son the ultimate gift.
Chase – who has cerebral palsy – has only limited sight, is partially deaf, cannot crawl, lift his head or feed himself.
And the two-year-old is fed through a tube as his brain cannot cope with the swallowing reflex.
Having already raised more than £3,500, Miss Secker hopes to continue in order to reach a total of £6,000.
The funds raised will help the charity, The Movement Centre, build special machinery which is designed to help Chase start to hold his head up and begin to help him start to be able to move.
The sky dive took place at Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent and Georgia was exceptionally nervous as the plane climbed to a height of 12,000 feet before she was helped out of the plane by a qualified instructor.
