Weʼre raising £1,000 to help a young boy called Oliver who has lost his leg at a very young age.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hi and thank you for taking the time to read our JustGiving donation page which we have set up in aid to provide Oliver with specialist equipment he will need in his every day life.
At birth unbeknown his parents apart from a small red patch, Oliver had what is known as plexiform schwannoma’s (nerve tumors) rapidly growing at the bottom of his left leg and behind his left knee. The tumor behind his knee was subsequently removed in January 2017 but unfortunately a later MRI scan showed that there were 2 smaller tumors growing back. The lesion on his lower leg consisted of a mass of tumors growing on the surface of the skin and around his bone which deformed his tibia and ankle. This meant the only option was amputation.
A group of runners from GE are going to try and run 1000 miles between us from the 1st of september to 30th September. Also we have a small group who are going to try and ride 300 miles each in the same month September. We are doing this to raise money for Oliver to get some special equipment that he will need for the future.
