Judy Leden MBE
Judy Leden is without question the greatest woman pilot in free flying. She has been three times champion of the world, twice in hang gliding, in paragliding and six times British Woman’s Champion. She has dropped from a balloon at 41,000 feet over the Jordanian Desert, higher than any man or woman in the world and has also captained the British Hang Gliding team.
Judy joined the stem cell register because of Margot, after being touched by her appeal. She later went on to donate her peripheral stem cells to a patient in need. Her gender and age imply that it’s highly likely that Judy was the ONLY donor in the world for that particular patient.
