    Weʼve raised £6,954 to help the Jackson family during the next life-changing stage of Scarlett's journey.

    Finningley, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 11th May 2016

    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 nonprofit.

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


    Scarlett is an 8 year old Finningley resident who attends St Oswald's C of E Academy. She was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer, just before Christmas.

    Scarlett's life has taken on a dramatic change in a short space of time. Where she was recently a lively, energetic youngster who enjoyed many activities with her friends, including roller skating and ice skating, she is now spending 2 out of every 3 weeks in hospital.

    She has already endured a number of life changing hurdles, including losing her beautiful long hair. All fundraising efforts so far have been donated to The Little Princess Trust, a charity chosen by Scarlett and her family, who make wigs for children in Scarlett's situation.

    However: Scarlett's journey continues...

    On the 15th May 2016, Scarlett will be on her way to Oklahoma, USA, to receive vital Proton Therapy to aid her treatment here in the UK.

    Even though the treatment in the USA is funded by the NHS, the personal cost to the family will be huge, as Scarlett has a twin brother Alex and a younger brother Will, therefore making the whole trip very costly.

    Throughout her treatment so far, Scarlett has maintained her humongous smile, wit and gorgeousness! She is an absolute star and a total credit to her parents and everyone who knows her.

    As friends, neighbours and community, we would like to make this life changing trip to Oklahoma a little bit easier.
