Advantage Healthcare Renal Technician Sherryl Badder will be undertaking a Wing Walk this summer to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society.
Sherryl from Wareham, Dorset joined Advantage Healthcare in December 2018. She is also a registered nurse and works in a local nursing home.
As a renal technician Sherryl travels between Corfe Castle and the New Forest to see regular clients. She said: “It’s a lovely job, I see the same clients each week and it fits in well with my nursing job. I’m very happy to work for Advantage Healthcare and to have found a job where I help people affected by renal problems. I am especially touched to do this work, as my sister died from renal failure at a young age.”
The wing walk is scheduled for 19th June, at an airfield in Essex. Sherryl admits that she is a bit of an adrenaline junkie and she has already done a couple of static line parachute jumps to raise money for Cancer Research.
The inspiration for Sherryl’s charity challenge is her cousin Linda, who has lived with MS for 40 years. Sherryl said: “Linda has defied the doctors and specialists by having a full life of dancing, singing and performing professionally. She has lived such a remarkable life showing bravery and determination regardless of how her MS affected her. She participates in trials that may help her and others even though they have no guarantees.
“More awareness and funds is desperately needed to help these brave people fight the symptoms which is so debilitating.”
