IN 2018, a Weston grandmother with months left to live jumped from a plane at 15,000ft for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

After being diagnosed with stage four terminal glyoma in the brain, Anne Riney was told it could not be treated.

The 75-year-old opted out of brain surgery and chemotherapy and instead decided to live the rest of her life to the fullest, starting with a charity skydive.

Speaking at the time, Anne told the Weston Mercury: “I had always sworn, unless curable, I would not undergo radio or chemotherapy treatment.

“The experts informed me the brain operation would be pointless without the follow-up treatment of chemo and radio therapy. Currently I’m fit and well and the treatment would almost certainly have changed that.

“Instead I have opted to fight this holistically for as long as possible to preserve quality over quantity of life as the difference was only months.

“When I found out, my first thoughts were of my grandchildren.

“They have brought me so much pleasure over the past seven years and I have loved seeing them grow and am devastated I won’t see them turn into adults.”

Anne said that she had always ‘secretly fancied’ skydiving but it was not until faced with her diagnosis that she finally decided to give it a go.

Anne took on the challenge with her daughter Trudy Davies and daughter-in-law Lesley Riney on December 8, 2018.

Speaking then, Anne added: “Make-A-Wish tries to grant wishes to terminally-ill children who have not had the 75 years I have had.

“My greatest wish is that my greatest challenge may provide a wish come true for those children.

“Raising any amount of money would be nice, but I want to raise as much as possible.

“To make one child’s wish come true would be great, but to make lots of children’s dreams come true would be amazing.”

When he heard about the plans, Anne's son, John, said he was "rather surprised."

He added: “My hope for the event are mum gets the thrill she has obviously been seeking for a while.”
