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.


My partner is called Gary he is 29 years old and has ms he's been suffering for years with no diagnose. He got diagnosed at the start of April 2017 they think it is primary progressive but it's to early to tell.

There is HSCT haematopetic stem cell treatment that can slow down the process, its not 100% but anything is worth a try, there has been many success with this treatment. The only problem is this treatment is not yet available in the uk.

The treatment involves chemotherapy removal of own stem cells followed by more chemotherapy then the stem cells are injected back to reboot the immune system.

We are trying to raise funds for him to get this treatment.

He's not very mobile just now and pretty much house bound. We want/need this treatment to keep Gary as mobile as possible. He hasn't been able to work for a good few months now which is making him feel down.

It's so hard to watch him not being able to do the most simplest things in life like walking, climbing the stairs is like walking Ben nevis for Gary, everyday things like taking the dog a walk doing the hoovering putin shoes and socks on. It's heartbreaking he deserves a chance in life like each and every individual. With being so young he just wants to have some part of his life back.

We as a family love Gary to the moon and back. I want the best for Gary we are a young family.

Family and friends are helping to do sponsored walks, runs, baking stalls, dj nights, bingo nights. if anyone has any ideas please drop me a message.

I know I am asking for alot but I would be very grateful if anyone could help.

    Update from the Page owner

    Thankyou so much for everyone's support and very generous donations. We are nearly half way so far we have raised roughly £20,000 in less than 6 months. Absolutely amazing and we couldn't have got this far without everyone's support. Gary started a new medication his walking is a bit more stable. The tremors in his right leg are not as severe. I'm so incredibly proud of him 💖 he's managing to lift his right leg up without using his hands which is absolutely amazing another MRI tomorrow to check progress. Will keep updated when we get results.

    Update on our funding we think we have raised about 15000 so far. If anyone has any ideas on fund raising please drop me a message. Garys has had more bad than good days recently. The slightest thing is flooring him. He got a foot splint a few weeks ago and waiting for botox on his right leg. Hi's mobility is not very good at the moment. We are hoping the botox will help with the leg tremors. Thankyou to everyone who has supported Gary and donated to make this treatment a reality not just a dream 💖
