The 10K Record – Virtual Book Tour

The 10K Record by Christopher Healy

Someone once told me that a parent will do anything for their child, this story is a perfect example of how great a fathers love really is.

Meet Christy Healy, a native of Kilmaley, Co. Clare.  In March 2010 Christy and his wife Trish were given the news that their only child, Stephen (18), had Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (a cancer of the lymphoid tissue).  Any parent out there can only imagine the emotional blow and extreme stress this type of news brings, but like any great parents Christy and Trish pulled up their sleeves and faced it head on.  Combined with the positive energy and determination of Stephen they took on this illness…

Christopher Healy is a very experienced diving instructor with his own diving school, The Atlantic Diving School, and is based in Ennis, Co Clare.   In March 2010 Christy and his wife Trish were given the news that their only child, Stephen (18), had Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (a cancer of the lymphoid tissue).

One of  Stephen’s regular visitors during his hospital stays was Christopher’s cousin, an active volunteer with the Share a Dream Foundation (making dreams come true for sick children in Ireland).  An idea began to form in Christopher’s mind that he would like to do his own fundraising for the charity by attempting a 10 km dive – and setting a new world record.

This is the story behind Christopher’s record-breaking dream.

In advance of the official launch of Christopher’s book about his world record-breaking 10K dive, on Saturday, May 5th, Christopher is on a virtual book tour this week.
