Lisa’s high hopes for Willen Hospice

Lisa Williams is used to challenges – in the past few years she has battled cancer three times.

But with a steely determination, she has won through.

Last week she took to the skies for a charity skydive in support of Willen Hospice.

“It was fantastic,” Lisa told the Citizen.

“I want to do it again. I did say that if I had my life over again I would want to do it for a job!”

Lisa was joined by her daughter Jasmine and nephew Robert for the event 13,000 feet up, which raised £1,650 for the charity.

Lisa took the plane plunge having just learned that the cancer has returned for a fourth time.

She begins a course of radiotherapy on Wednesday, and is approaching this new battle with typical courage.

“It’s stubborn, but not as stubborn as me,” she promised.
