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 nonprofit.

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

Story

Alexa is 7 and suffers refractory epilepsy which means that she doesn't respond to medication.

Alexa suffered over 850 grand mal seizures last year requiring oxygen and spent 7 months of the year in a hospital bed.

With every seizure Alexa risks further damage and potentially life threatening ‘status’ which means seizure does not stop. Alexa is at a high risk of sudden death in epilepsy because rescue seizure medications do not stop her clusters of seizures. We have to watch her suffer until she comes out of it by herself, but one day she may not and we can't wait until that happens. Cannabis oil is our only hope!

On November 1 the UK government finally changed the law to allow children to be prescribed cannabis-based medicine but it isn't happening and we are forced to go abroad to Holland to get treatment.

A private neurologist in Holland has prescribed Alexa this medicine and we hope it will provide some relief and help bring her seizures under control and keep Alexa out of hospital.

Each 10 ml bottle of medicine costs £170 and this works out at min of ten thousand a year. We have to get medicine from Holland although we live in Scotland.

We cannot access this medicine on the NHS and this means that we are wholly reliant on the private health system and the generosity of the public to help us.

This is Alexa's last hope and chance at a quality life. Any contribution you make be it big or small can help change my little girls life forever! Please help...we appreciate all your support.
Big hug from Alexa. X
