Weʼre raising £25,000 to support Alex and her family as she fights the effects of her aggressive brain tumour

Stockport, UK

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

Our beautiful little girl Alex is just six. She was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour in April 2018 and has already spent 33 days in hospital where she endured numerous operations, including seven hours of surgery to remove the tumour.

She now faces many months of daily debilitating radiotherapy at The Christie in Manchester and chemotherapy as an inpatient at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

We asked what she would rather be doing than being sick and in pain all the time. She said going to a caravan in Wales or visiting Harry Potter World in Florida!

So any money we raise will be used to give Alex and her brother James some fun experiences to make life a bit more bearable and some great family memories.

It will also go to any equipment and support Alex will need during and after these gruelling and life-changing treatments as well as help support our family during times when we will be unable to work due to Alex's health.

We will donate a portion to cancer charities that we are supporting - details will be added below as they happen. If you would rather your donation went to specific charity please let us know.

Thank you to everyone who has got in touch to ask what they could do to help. We have been overwhelmed by your kindness.

Paul, Kathryn, James and Alex
