Help our campaign reach the Moon
I’M writing to appeal to readers to join Blue Skye Thinking’s Loom to the Moon campaign, from Monday to February 20, which aims to raise awareness of brain tumours – the number one cancer killer in children and teenagers in the UK.
My son Skye died in August from medulloblastoma, an aggressive and cancerous brain tumour, when he was just five years old. Skye suffered hugely over the last year but his enduring strength and good humour in the face of such adversity is a testament to his strength of character.
Before he died, he launched the Loom to the Moon fundraising campaign to break the Guinness world record for the longest loom band. The idea was inspired by his favourite pasttime whilst in a Hyberbaric Oxygen Chamber, which he thought was like being in a space rocket. His younger brother Jesse is trying to finish this in memory of his big brother. We have 1,390 people looming for us in the UK.
We’re asking everyone, of all ages, to visit a shopping centre nearby next week and meet myself, my husband Andrew and my son Jesse, as we travel from Aberdeen back to Oxford. You can collect free loom
