    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.


    Clara is our daughter. We are looking for sponsors to help. Clara is 2 yrs old & has a very rare life limiting syndrome called Smith Lemli Opitiz. There is only about 800 people world wide with this syndrome about 32 in the UK believed although not confirmed. We have been told she got this syndrome from us as we are carriers with no symptoms so this has completely shocked us ,we were expecting a healthy happy carefree thriving baby. Only to be told seven months later (as Clara was undiagnosed for this long ) that she was very sick . We were told Clara would never be able to live on her own she would have severe learning difficulties, will never talk & possibly never walk as well as suffering from lots of medical conditions ,problems with all major organs can occur with this syndrome i.e. heart ,lungs ,liver etc it seems our girl has a big fight ahead for the rest of her life & we are doing everything we can as parents to give her the best fighting chance of a pain-free happy life
    This has been a huge shock and changed our lives so much with no answers here in the Uk for us.
    We are fundraising to go to America this year for an experimental trial/conference to meet the only doctors in the world who actually know anything about this syndrome. Please are you able to help us get there ?
    Clara has already shocked doctors by doing more than they said she would do these included things like moving,giggling,interacting, playing with toys, talking and walking (just got her first standing frame and actually called me mama 😀 she may only ever say a few words in her life but that's a good one )
    We have been doing a lot of fundraising and have appeared in lots of local newspapers,national magazines like Take a Break and Best magazine plus doing Christmas stalls,making bracelets ,toys and sorting out raffle prizes now and are organising a fun day but we are still a very long way from target so if you can help in anyway this would be amazing thank you so much for your time.
