    What is crowdfunding?

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


    Updating on behalf of Emma at the moment. We do have some fantastic news in that she has confirmation ALL of her treatment is going to be fully paid. I will be closing down this appeal, not that funds are no longer needed, but they're not needed in the large sums that we initially thought.

    All of the treatments will come with associated expenses, including travel, subsistence, accommodation - including for whoever goes with Em to give moral and physical support. Also she wants to explore alternative and complimentary therapies to support her treatment and give the best possible chance of longer term survival. This was actually what the original fundraising appeal was set up for and we stepped it up when we found there was a need for large sums.

    There will naturally be donors who have very kindly donated to fund a specific aspect of Emma's treatment. If you have done so and are happy that we can use your generous donation to support the treatment in another way, then please be assured it will be used only for costs related to Emma's ongoing treatment (we will keep records of course).

    If anyone would like their donation back, had they given on the basis of the need for the specific drug, I will return this to them with my thanks and blessings for their kindness, but we don't want anyone misled.

    We thank you ALL for your kindness, support, messages of hope and encouragement, you have restored much faith in human kindness and words of gratitude simply don't seem enough.

    Thank you

      Donors - again many thanks for your support and generosity. As per the update on the page, we have got the great news that ALL the treatment is now covered. I have changed the appeal to indicate that we've raised enough now to support Emma through her treatment with things like travel costs, accommodation and alternative or complimentary therapies. Please see main body of text in the story and if anyone's donation was for the specific treatment that is now paid and they would like it back, they are very welcome to request this.

      So, I wake up this morning and check the status of the appeal. I guess people have seen the article and there has been a flurry of donations and support. Thank you so much, you wonderful, generous people. Your support is priceless, it brings hope and that's very much needed at the moment. On behalf of Emma and her family, I send you much love and thanks

      As of today, the appeal is going out in the Bedford Times and Citizen. We really hope that this will make a difference as people learn about Emma's fight. Donations are still coming in and we continue to be overwhelmed by the support and kindness shown. We would like to continue to ask people to share the appeal, it's sharing that is helping this pot keep growing. http://www.bedfordtoday.co.uk/news/local/bedford-mum-of-three-struggling-to-fund-cancer-treatment-1-7577340 Much love and thanks from us all, especially Emma <3
