Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Nicky Asbury was a lovely Mum who stood beside us all, cheering on her beautiful boys on the rugby pitch. Her family described her as an inspiring, warm, intelligent and vibrant woman who lived life to the full. She developed the rare, poorly known but deadly disease, lieomyosarcoma of the uterus (a fibroid gone rogue). Despite surgery and chemotherapies she died on 1st July 2016. Her husband, Mark and three children are raising money to fund half the cost of a 3 year PhD fellowship which will be match funded by Newcastle University. Through researching this 'orphan' cancer, and raising it's profile, the diagnosis and outcomes may be improved in the future and more children will keep their Mum's for longer. Any donations will be gratefully received. Thanks Caroline and Sarah

Sarah and I are going sugar free for 10 weeks - a major feat for us. No alcohol, no sweets, no crisps and no chocolate! It will be more than worth it if we reach our goal :)
