    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Until recently Christina was a very happy little four year old girl who was enjoying life at her new home in Norfolk with her family.

    In October 2016 we noticed she was experiencing noticeable fatigue. As it got worse Christina then began to develop a slight limp in her right leg. This worsened still to the point where she would asked to be picked up and carried to school.

    This is when we decided to go the doctor. Blood tests were taken and came back negative. He then referred her to a orthopaedic specialist who arranged an x-ray. This again showed no abnormalities. The Specialist then suggested a paediatric neurologist.

    During this time the symptoms worsened and we noticed that Christina was not using her right arm as she normally did, it seemed somewhat weakened. She seemed very unwell. My wife then went to the A&E and explained the situation and how we were waiting for a neurologist appointment but things had worsened and we felt that it needed urgent attention. They examined Christina and diagnosed her with tonsillitis, sending her home with some antibiotics.

    In February Christina was sedated and had an MRI scan. We had an agonising wait for the results. We could tell from their faces that the news was not good. Our happy little world was about to change forever.

    They told us that Christina had a Mid-Brain Glioma. Within two hours of receiving this devastating news I found myself sitting in the back of an ambulance with Christina being driven at high speed, blue lights flashing, on our way to a Neurology hospital.

    The MRI scans revealed that Christina has a high grade glioma situated in the brain stem with typical characteristics of an aggressive cancerous tumour. It can't be operated on or removed and even a biopsy of it is not without serious risks.

    Christina's prognosis is poor but with your help we want to do our best to find alternative treatment for her here in the UK or abroad.

    Thank you, God bless.

      My wife and I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have so kindly donated on our justgiving page. This money will no doubt in the coming weeks go some way in helping us with what we are currently doing for Christina. She is stable for now and is receiving some of the best supplements and alternative treatments available, and this should give us some healthy quality time while we continue with our efforts to get her well.
