[HOW-TO-FIX] FastCell Implementation ItemAppearing iOS

After reviewing the sample, the Xamarin.Forms native cell implementation was being replaced with the GeorgeCook FastCell implementation. 

This is causing the ItemAppearing event to not bubble up on iOS because the mechanism for bubbling up that event lives in the Xamarin.Forms native cell implementation. 

The attached project displays how you can re-implement the ItemAppearing event for iOS with the FastCell implementation.
