Weʼre raising £3,000 to Help fund urgent medical help for a family member
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.
I'm doing a sponsored skydive with Bryan Martin to raise money for my girlfriends cousin Chris who needs to get home from China for urgent medical help.
Chris has just been diagnosed with a terminal illness - Adrenal Leukodystrophy. In time, he will lose all motor functions, his sight and his swallow reflex, ending up in a vegetive state, succumbing to dementia and end his days on a life support machine.
Chris is only 38, is recently married and has a 5 month old son. He is currently living in China where he was diagnosed and whilst the care he has received there has been great, their expertise is limited. We are trying to raise money to get him and his family home to the UK where the UK leads the way in Mito diseases, and where the wider family can support them. The disease is genetic so Chris' son will also need to be tested and if he has the defected gene, we can plan ahead accordingly.
Any donation will be gratefully received and no donation is too small.
