Weʼve raised £1,060 to raise money to split between St Peter's Hospital Children's Ward & Alyssa, the little Monkey they help so much

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
After hearing the devastating news that one of my grandchildren has got cancer, I have been looking for something to do in order to give something back & help Alyssa out - who by now, you all know about. As such, I have decided that I would like to host a Two-way charity crowdfunding page, with a hair event also.
A lot of fundraising efforts go towards the bigger hospitals, like the Royal Marsden, & rightly so as Alyssa has been so well looked after there...this often means that the local hopsitals are overlooked. I would like to donate a half of whatever money is raised to St Peter's Hospital Chidren's ward - primarily Little Oaks, the oncology unit & Ash ward where Alyssa has spent a fair amount of time.
The second recipient is Alyssa herself. Alyssa has been incredible throughout this ordeal, missing out on holidays, parties, days out, nursery & more...even still she has remained amazingly upbeat. I think that Alyssa deserves a super special treat at the end of treatment.
Lastly, I will be getting my hair cut and donating the "plait" to The Little Princess Trust (http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/). Alyssa hasn't cared at all that she has lost her hair, so we didn't make a big deal of it...it will & is growing back beautifully, but we know that some children are more concerned about this more obvious side effect, so the Little Princess Trust will take the hair & put it towards making a wig for these children. Depending on how much we are able to raise, we will send them a little something too, to help with the costs of making the wig too.
Thank you so much in advance for your donation, for reading our story & showing your continued support. Friends & family have made this harrowing news a little easier to bear.

Alyssa has probably wiped out the playroom of all their creative good this week, giving her a paint your own money box, draw on pencil case & bag, create you're own fluffy dogs, copious amounts of paint, stickers & glitter, as well as wooden shapes for painting, then loan of a DVD player & a great library of movies. The nursing staff have been equally attentive to Alyssa's needs, running around after her, getting milk & drinks, playing with her & just being all round super stars. Please help us to help support this wonderful hospital

I'm a grandmother of a little warrior. I care because noone, especially children should have to endure this. So lets make the enviroment better for the little ones so once the nasty bit is done, they can get on & play.
