    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    My dad 'Mark' recently passed away very suddenly and unexpected. I was talking to him one day happy and healthy and gone the next aged 56. He had pneumonia that escalated into sepsis and sepsis shock. I had no idea what sepsis was and was so confused and angry. I now know sepsis accounts for up to 44,000 deaths annually in the UK. That’s more bowel cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer put together. How did I not know about this?

    Early diagnosis of sepsis can be highly prevented with early diagnosis. I feel that I need to make more people aware of the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for sepsis and would very much like to start a charity enabling me to do this through media, charity events and publishing. With this, I would also like to raise money for early diagnosis machines that can reduce the sampling time from 5 days to 3-4 hours! This is something very dear to my heart and will be starting the ball rolling on this soon. I have set this page up as an initial crowd fund raising project to get it off its feet and hopefully begin the road to successfully saving lives.

    Kindest Regards

      Thank you for the donations so far. This has enabled the purchase and 12 months hosting for www.stampoutsepsis.co.uk. A major step in getting this charity off the ground. I'm looking now for ambassadors to help promote the awareness and help raise critical funds. Thanks again :) John.
