raised of £5,000 target by 88 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,100 to cover 1 month's cost for Gemma Lee's medical treatment of a Brain Tumour...£5,000 per month for a trial drug.

    Funded on Saturday, 3rd September 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Gemma is a mum of 2 young children, Garyson and Hadley, wife to Graeme aka Baz. Diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma, a terminal brain tumour, in 2019 .

    The Tumour is very rare & inoperable so standard treatment (Intensive Chemotherapy and Radiotherpay) wasn’t effective, and in fact made Gemma incredibly ill.

    Gemma is now over 36 months into a 12 month prognosis due to a trial drug from Germany called ONC201 which cost in excess of £5k month. Imagine having to find £5k a month to stay alive!

    Gemma started a blog in 2019 to document her diagnosis, treatment and living with Brain Cancer. She shares the raw day to day reality of what live is like and you will be able to see why she is loved so much from reading this...and why I want to help.

    Gemmas god children ahve also set up a brand of clothing called Warrior Wear GL365 (see my profile picture above) in order to help raise funds for Gemma. All profits raised from sales go towards the cost of Gemmas treatment, if you'd like to buy any of the items you can find them on facebook, instagram and below is their website too.

    I'm kickstarting my fundraising goal for 2022 with a 4-4-48 Challenge, 4 miles, every 4 hours for 48 hours on 20th May at 5:00pm. Please follow my Facebook page @5K4Gemma for details of each run and please get involved in person or virtually if you like.

    Thank you in advance for all of your support, Kathryn xx

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
