Local TV presenter Lyn Moloney is about to step totally out of her comfort zone and jump from a plane over Kilkenny Airfield this Saturday, October 1.
The skydive is for a worthy cause — to raise funds for little Dylan Finglas (4), who suffers from a rare illness called MSD. Unless enough money is raised to develop a treatment, Dylan may not live to see his 10th birthday.
Gene therapy in Italy gives him hope— but it is very expensive.
Lyn, who is friends with Dylan's parents, is determined — if a little nervous — about the jump.
“I don't like heights; I won't even go up on a rollercoaster!” she says.
The Callan woman hopes to raise €3,000, and has just broken over the €2,000 mark. You can donate at the link: https://give.everydayhero.com/ie/skydive-for-dylan.
