The sky’s the limit? Not for Flossie Donovan and Oksana Duval-Petryna who work at the Richard Desmond Children's Eye Centre at Moorfields. In September 2017 they will be taking the plunge by falling through the air from 10,000 feet and reaching over 120mph in an exciting skydive.
Both Flossie and Oksana have worked for Moorfields for over 7 years and have seen what Moorfields can do for patients first hand. Flossie has an even more personal relationship with the hospital, as she has been a patient at Moorfields herself since she was six years old. She says:
“Eyesight is something we all take for granted and the work that Moorfields does in researching conditions and their treatment is truly amazing. Some of the current treatments did not even exist when my first visit to the hospital took place! Please help and support me in raising vital funds for Moorfields.”
Flossie has had a close relationship with Moorfields Eye Charity over the past four years. She has participated in all three Eye to Eye walks and she took on the ArcelorMittal Orbit abseil challenge in 2016, but Flossie isn’t stopping there. This year she will take on the adrenaline rush of falling 262 feet again and join Oksana in the skydive, all in the space of one week.
Flossie is a play specialist and Oksana is a health care assist (HCA). Both work hard to give the patients the best possible care, but they wanted to go even further to make sure this work continues. If you can support them in any way they will be very grateful.
Good luck Flossie and Oksana
