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.


Recently my mum, Bev, has been diagnosed with Kidney cancer; she is only 54. At this present moment we are in limbo as to what treatment she will receive as she is awaitng an MRI. However, as a family we are aware that she will need specialist care due to the size and placement of the tumour and the road to recovery will, no doubt, be a long one.

My dad, Andy, is a self-employed builder/roofer, this means his work load varies and regular income is not always guaranteed. He will obviously want to be by mum's side while she is being treated, this, coupled with mum being off work, will mean their income will significantly drop.

To help support them during this difficult and uncertain time, I am seeking the generosity of others, people who know them and people who don't, just to help eleviate some of the stress they will inevitably face. My parents are generous and caring and I know they will be eternally grateful for any help they receive.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Abbey xx

    Everyone, Today my family and I had the results of mum's MRI scan and luckily, despite what the specialist originally thought, the cancer is so far only confined to the kidney. As you can all imagine, we are all absolutely elated by this news. She will be going to the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital on Mon 17th for the operation. Any and all donations received up to this point are hugely appreciated and my parents are in awe of the kindness shown. Please know what you all have given will help them massively during mum's recovery period
