    What is crowdfunding?

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


    Hi, I'm cat, I am here asking for help for funds for a life changing operation, for 8 years I have had vericose veins which was manageable up until 2 years ago, I have tried all conventional treatments that the NHS offer, sadly I am not eligible for any surgery, it's caused thrombophlebitis which causes swelling and continuous pain and very hot around the veins, the junctions in my knee and groin have collapsed and need replacing, I'm to young they said and they won't help unless I have continuous blood clots or ulcers that get infected, I am a young parent I have a disabled child which is hard, I am reaching out to social media for the help I need, I've been so self conscious about it for a long time and the depression of being stuck in as I couldn't bare the pain some days not being able to do as much as I'd like as a parent hurts the most, I want to be around in their later life, This surgery will change so many aspects of my life, I don't want to be crying in pain or from not being able to walk, if you cauld help sponsor me and help me get this surgery you are awesome I will be eternally greatful knowing strangers and friends have helped me raise the funds.

    if you have any questions my email is cat.dimmu87@gmail.com
