Paul's skydiving for Angela

2nd May 2012

Angela, my wife, had a normal head of hair when we met in 1999. We were married in 2003 and have two beautiful boys together.

In 2009 large clumps of Angela's hair started to fall out and she was diagnoised with Alopecia. She is now completely bald, but still very beautiful.

I want to do something to support her and in doing so raise some money for a great charity, which will hopefully one day contribute to finding a cure. This is why I am jumping out of an aircraft and doing my sponsored parachute jump.

I am doing an Accelerated Free Fall parachute jump in aid of Alopecia UK. This is the one where you are not joined on to someone (called a tandem), but you fly and land the parachute ON YOUR OWN!

Please show your support any contribution, no matter how big will help make a difference.

A special guest will be cheering me on, Kayla Martell, will be in the UK and attending the jump. Kayla is an American beauty queen from Milford, Delware, and the winner of the Miss Delaware 2010 pageant and placed in the Top 10 at the Miss America 2011 pageant. In the fifth grade, Kayla was diagnosed with alopecia areata and subsequently lost all her hair and has competed in the Miss Delaware pageant four other times; three times without a wig.
