    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    We are trying to help Millee, a 9 year old girl who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 6.
    Her consultant has recommended that she needs a continual blood glucose meter called a Libre, that would almost eliminate her having to prick her fingers. This would mean so much to her as her fingers are starting to develop hard black spots from over use as her fingers are so small.
    Unfortunately these are considered a luxury at the moment on the NHS and are not funded. However, she has been very luck to have been given 1 of 3 Libre, that were allocated to Hinchinbrookes pediatric diabeties team. However the sensors will cost between £120- £180 a month, as these are also not currently funded on the NHS.
    She currently has recieved funding for a Medtronic insulin pump, this in the majority eliminates the need to inject her with insulin on average 5x a day, that needs to be replaced every 3 years. She qualifies for funding until she is 14, then they will cost £3000 a go.
