    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    This is to raise money for The Balaam Family, not necessarily because the need it but because they hugely deserve it. My aim is to try and make things a little lighter for them.. hoping the money raised can help them have an amazing Christmas or towards a little family break to get away from it all.

    Most of you receiving this will know of the tough times the family faced over the last few years, then things were looking up celebrating their Wedding In August... then the shock and sad news came very shortly after toward the end of August that Connor had been diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma Type B-Burkitts, with this the family did what most families would do and faced it head on but in an amazingly positive way which is how they seem to tackle most things.. Tests and Chemo treatment soon started, their life must of turned upside down.

    Split between home and Manchester being there for Connor and keeping life normal for Freya must be some juggling act but they pull it off again with a smile and positivity. I am sure you all join me in being so proud of Connor and how he has faced this and of this family unit for being.. simply just who they are :0)

    I understand its nearly Christmas and not everybody has a lot spare, even if everybody donated a £1 it will add up and make a difference..
    (Amy will probably kill me for this between us it was going to be this or one of those 60 second make over kind of shows!)
