My name is Alexis and on the 11th of August 2023, I turned 21. This birthday came with a lot of special meaning close to my heart for myself and my family. For some context, in 2016, my big sister Natasha passed away from a sudden cardiac arrest on July 6th. She was 20. At the time of her passing I was only 13 and this year I’ve reached the age of 21 that she never got to, so in her memory I wanted to spend this birthday making a special memory as she spent her short life filled creating with those she loved. Last year when I turned 20 I began fundraising towards a charity skydive for C-R-Y in her memory and this summer I got to complete my goal at 13,000ft in the sky after raising £895.00, a total that went above and beyond my expectations. This experience has left me with an incredible memory and a birthday I will never forget and am proud to have created for myself and Natasha.
