What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

David is my son and has a sarcoma of his hip. This is a rare bone cancer he also had tumours on his lungs. He has to travel a 4 hour round trip for chemo two to three times in a week because the hospital he goes to specialises in this kind of tumour. David has been unable to work for the last 6 years because of a hip deformity that had gradually been getting worse over the years. David can't stand for long periods, can't walk far and is not allowed to use stairs or weight bear on his bad side in case his bone breaks. David has been waiting six years for a hip replacement operation. His cancer was missed from a MRI scan 18 months ago. David has a partner Vikki she cares for David , looks after their 5 children the youngest is 3 years old. They just about manage to keep their heads above water. This has put an unbelievable burden on their shoulders not only emotionally but financially as well. Your donation would mean that the money would be there for petrol and car parks over the next 30 weeks of his chemo plan. This will hopefully take some of the stress away from them. Please please help them.
Thanks for reading
Love
David's mum

    Thank you to all our friends family and strangers for donating to David's funding page. We have totalled 990.00 today. That doesn't include the friends and family cash donations . Overwhelming generosity and we can't thank you enough. David is on his second round of chemo this week , this chemo is a nasty one this time so we've been told but he seems to be tolerating it well and is keeping a positive outlook. David is so pleased that so many people are helping him. He really did not expect so much help and good wishes from everyone x
