Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Hi there... My friend Andrew's beautiful 6 year old daughter Kate was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in April this year.
It has been extremely hard for him to be a single dad with two other children, while running a photography business and looking after his little angel. She requires MRI scans every three months and has lost 80% eye sight in her right eye. Due to this, her eyes wander quite a lot and she went in for additional eye surgery three weeks ago.
She is doing ok, but the costs associated with the eye surgery are quite substantial.... £2,000 would be magical to cover existing medical costs and cover upcoming medical costs at least until Christmas.
Long story short, Andrew was due to be paid a sum of money for services he rendered for a phantom conference that never happened. This has left him in a tricky position of figuring out how to increase his workload to cover the payment he was no longer going to receive.
I met Andrew on my trip to Australia. He did stepped in when the original conference was cancelled and helped make the new conference happen. He took photos for us and acted as chauffeur. He helped make magic out of a mess. He did this from the goodness of his own heart.
Andrew has been furiously working to recover the amount of payment he lost through the 4 day conference being cancelled. I told Andrew I know earth angels and that I would put an appeal to everyone of them I know to help him cover his costs at least until Christmas.
So calling all my earth angel friends, would you kindly donate any sum to ease this family's burden and allow Andrew to focus on her recovery?

Thank you to all of you who donated. We were able to raise 31% of the money I had planned to raise. Your generosity goes a long way, and I sincerely thank you, and I know Andrew is truly grateful and humbled for your support.
