Jack's Disneyland Dream

The Swimming Gardener is 'Back 4 Jack'. 

This is 3 year old Jack Weaver from Littlehampton.  In November 2013 he was short of breath and his side hurt. In the space of just 12 hours he was Blue Lighted to intensive care in Southampton & diagnosed with every parent's nightmare Childhood Cancer. Jack had Non- Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
From that moment everything in the Weaver family's life was turned on it's head and, to this day, as Jack continues his battle with the disease remains so.
Jack has little memory of life without tubes, needles, hospitals, Chemotherapy and endless relapses followed by long stays in hospital. 
Jack's little sister Adelaide, does not know much of a life beyond support for big brother. 
So here's how we as a soceity can help:
Your money will be split to pay for Jack & Family to spend 5 days in Disneyland Paris, and the following 2 wonderful Cancer Charities:

Clic Sargent - Helping families deal with childhood Cancer together

Tyler's Trust (gift boxes for children with life threatening illness)

So Here's why I come in. I have an alter-ego called 'The Swimming Gardener' 

Over the past few years, I have raised over £28,000 for both Children's charities and cancer charities and now after a rest of 18 months.. I'm Back 4 Jack.
I'm not in the best of health and getting a little creaky these days so another 20 mile swim just won't do.
So I have set up a swim called 'Disney Bound 4 Jack'

Quite simply I shall be taking part in the 2015 River Arun Ironman Swim. 3.8km from Ford in West Sussex to Littlehampton. Not much for an endurance swimmer, however I will be doing it with my legs bound together and one arm tied behind my back... just to make things interesting. 

Will I drown? Go in circles? You decide, oh, and please don't forget to sponsor the effort!
Kind Regards
Steve White AKA The Swimming Gardener
