Friends Hannah & Natalie take on Yorkshire Day Skydive

Friends Hannah & Natalie take on Yorkshire Day Skydive

Wed 28 July

Natalie Walker is braving a skydive on the 1st of August with her friend Hannah, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2020.

Hannah Harling (above, right), who climbed the Yorkshire Three Peaks for YBTC with her sister Rachel at the start of June, is bravely taking on a brand new challenge for YBTC with her friend Natalie Walker (above, left). On Sunday 1st August, they're going to be jumping out of a plane from 10,000 feet for our Yorkshire Day Skydive!

Speaking about their challenge, Natalie said: "'Health is Wealth' was a phrase I learnt from my friend Hannah. I remember thinking back then how true that statement was, never really considering the sudden impact that meaning could have.

"So when I received a call over a year ago to be told Hannah was in ICU following a seizure and was being examined for a brain tumour, I was absolutely devastated for Hannah and her young family. Our fears were realised when Hannah (at the age of 33) was diagnosed with a low-grade glioma and would need brain surgery. A nightmare totally exacerbated by the pandemic adding further fear to her situation.

"Fortunately, Hannah is one of the lucky ones, and I know how immensely grateful she is for the treatment, support and aftercare she received from everyone throughout her journey, in particular the team at Leeds General Infirmary.

"The mental and emotional strength I've witnessed has been nothing short of an inspiration! I have never heard Hannah complain once during this past year, something I can’t comprehend but is so telling of the amazing person she is, no doubt helped through the confidence she had in the medical professionals supporting her.

"So when Hannah asked me (so casually) if I wanted to do a skydive with her to raise money for Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity, I didn’t hesitate!"

We're all very proud of Natalie and Hannah for taking on this challenge and grateful to them for choosing to support YBTC.
