    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 charity.

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

    Story

    In January this year my 37 year old brother; Stephen was told he has Stage 4 Colorectal (bowel) Cancer which has spread to his liver. The disease was discovered after an onset of symptoms occurred during his training for a charity boxing match raising money for Cancer Research. Now he faces his biggest fight yet which is to beat this horrific disease for himself.

    Stephen is a loving husband to Anita and a fantastic father to their 3 beautiful children; Olivia, Joseph and Joshua. He is a local business man who works at Rye Barbers, a job which he loves and which is a business he has built up himself from scratch. Unfortunately, currently, due to his illness he cannot be a part of.

    Stephen is currently undergoing gruelling chemotherapy treatment where the goal is for the cancer to become operable. Whilst the care and attention he has received on the NHS has been amazing, we want to give him the best possible chance of a cure and we would desperately want him to have the treatment that specialist surgeons can provide operating on him. It is not yet clear whether this will be possible on the NHS and since time is of the essence, with the help of donations from you it will give Stephen the option to seek any specialist treatments that may be needed further down the line.

    Anything you can give could make a difference to his, and his families future, and if this is not possible can we please ask that you simply just share this page.

    On behalf of my brother and his family, thank you.

      Update: Steve recently had his scan results, unfortunately we found out that the chemotherapy has stopped working. We have been told that the disease has stabilised but not yet operable. To continue on the treatment he's been on will only hold the cancer back for a short time so it is now a case of finding alternative drug therapy and possible radiotherapy to help him.

      ....We are as determined as ever to find the right treatment that will shrink these tumours and our goal is still to get Steve to these operations but it is looking more likely that the funds raised and still to be raised are going to go towards treatments that we pray are going to get him there. So please keep sharing our page, keep the LemonAid Challenge going and donate! Thank you x
