    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    In July 2016 Elisa started to get severe back pain, in August it wasnt just back pain it was constant nausea and headaches and leg and hip pain. She also found a lump in her throat which she thought was a swollen gland. eventually she decided to go to the doctors, she was rarely ill so was quite a big thing to do.They did some bloods etc over time but found nothing.
    Then on the 18th October she was admitted to hospital for a suspected blood clot on the lung as her breathing had become bad. the next day they told her that there were no blood clots but they had found cancer in the bones and needed to find the primary source. Biopsies on a lump in her breast and another lump they found under her arm and in her throat plus further ct scans and a full bone scan gave them the full diagnoses.

    Elisa was diagnosed with what is called Secondary Breast Cancer. This is where the primary cancer is in the breast but has spread away from there. It had already spread to both Femur bones, her Spine, Sternum and both hips. It was also in several lymph glands and also the breathing issues were being caused by cancer cells in her lungs making them inflamed.

    She is a single mum of 3 Beautiful children and has now been diagnosed with a non curative cancer. It can be managed and hopefully for many years but it has still shortened the time she has with them.
    She is a very positive person and believes she is going to fight this and keep going for as long as she can. she says
    "I have no fear of dying but I want to make the most of every moment I have left with my children. I would love to be able to take my children on a memorable holiday, And take them to see family I have in the states. I also want to try to be able to leave some money behind for my children but as you can imagine a single mum who can no longer work, money is very tight."

    Please give anything you can spare to make this happen xxx
