Weʼre raising £500 to help a friend who is recently undergoing life threatening treatment for an aggressive form of lung cancer
- Alnwick, UK
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 am raising funds along with several others for a friend of mine, Nikki, who has a very serious case of advanced lung cancer. She is a mother of twin toddlers, Molly's age. Last week, she commenced a life-threatening aggressive course of treatment. She has a very long way to go. The five-year survival rate from Nikki’s condition is typically 15-20%. However, she has her two very young boys to fight for. Her biggest fear is them not remembering her! Since she told me, I have not stopped thinking about her. I could not imagine being in the same situation with Molly. It really is truly heart-breaking!.
There is so little I can do to help, but one of the things I am doing is a sponsored hike and weight loss pledge. Many of my friends will know I've struggled with my weight since childhood, but I am determined to fight this battle along with Nikki’s much harder one. I am going to pledge 3 stone weight loss by the end of March! I am so committed to this , that I will reimburse the donations if I don’t meet the weight loss challenge, and replace from my own pocket!
As well, along with some of Nikki's friends, I will be doing the Three Castles and Coastal Challenge, a 31-mile hike along the Northumberland coast on the 30th March. This is a walk of epic proportions, but yet fails into insignificance in comparison to what Nikki is enduring.
The funds raised will go towards the family's household expenses
Will you support Nikki?
See more about Nikki’s story on the FaceBook page I’ve set up, where I will be posting updates on her progress and various fund raising events her friends and I are involved in. Please like, follow and share the page, even if you are unable to donate. Thank you.
