TO celebrate the life of a ‘superhero’, the family and friends of Bailie Morrow will take to the sky and become members of Team Bailie Parachute jumpers.
A total of 24 people will take part in a 13,000 feet parachute jump on July 15th in memory of four year Bailie from Ballinamallard who passed away on April 29th.
Bailie’s mother Rhonda, and his father Roger from Ballinamallard, will join 22 other jumpers who all had a special connection with their son – including two nurses who cared for the young boy.
Rhonda Morrow told the Herald, “It is very important to me, because being so high, this is probably the closest I will ever get to Bailie. I will never be fit to have the same bravery as he did. He took everything in his stride and was extremely brave throughout his treatment. Bailie was a daredevil and he had no fear, so that is why we have decided to do the jump.”
Bailie has been described as a “beautiful, happy go lucky boy with a gorgeous smile and a fantastic personality.” The young boy was also a massive fan of The Grassmen and Scania Lorries, and the day before Bailie died, Grassmen visited the Morrow’s family home and took Bailie for a spin in the lorry. The Grassmen have now dedicated one of their new tractors in memory of Bailie.
Bailie’s family are now hoping to give back to those who helped them in their time in need, and the money raised from the parachute jump will go towards the Children’s Cancer Unit in the Royal Victoria Hospital, and Angel Wishes. Angel Wishes is a charity that helps to provide treats and opportunities for children with Cancer.
“The support we have received has been amazing, and everyone has been very supportive. We are completely overwhelmed by the response and I owe a huge thank you to all who have donated so far,” said Rhonda.
To support the family, donations can be made via Paypal email@example.com.
