Weʼve raised £55 to give someone with cancer an experience to remember, made possible by Fintan's Fund www.fintansfund.com
- Belfast, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 11th May 2016
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.
Husband, son, brother, friend. Belfast man, talker, dreamer, spoofer. Sometimes life offers us the choice: quality or quantity?
When the choice came to Fintan, after collapsing on the rugby field and then dealt devastating news, he took quality. Quality of time to enjoy with his new wife, his family, his mates; to make a home; to create memories. Fintan was determined to wring the best out of each day, each hour.
In doing that, he showed those of us around him, saddened and bewildered by the unfairness of it all, that life gets better the more you share it.
He’s not with us any more, but his enthusiasm and energy remain. Money was raised for Fintan in order to fund some pioneering cancer treatment. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a chance to spend it. But it has provided us with the basis to create this fund, and the opportunities that go along with it for young adults, like Fintan, to get to do something special, to forget cancer for a while and remember something altogether bigger and better.
