Weʼre raising £3,000 to Send my incredible mum who has been through so many health problems on a holiday for Christmas that they deserve.
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.
Let me tell you about my mum Lynne. Before I go on, I need this message to be kept secret from her as it’s all a surprise.
She is one of the strongest and most amazing women in this world. After being diagnosed with cancer 7 years ago, undergoing gruelling surgery, and watching most of her family go through the same treatment, including myself, she has dealt with it with incredible strength. To top that of, her mum last year was diagnosed and then went on to beat Breast cancer and at the same time her dad had to have surgery. And if that wasn’t enough for one person to deal with, she is also a full time career for my dad, who is disabled, and now cares for my dads mum aswell, who struggles with dementia.
You wouldn’t know by just meeting her how much she’s been through in the past few years because she doesn’t show it. She’s bubbly and bright and keeps us all going even at the darkest of moments.
She is an incredible woman and deserves the world given back to her.
For Christmas this year I am trying to raise some money to send her and my father on an amazing holiday that they deserve. They went to the Maldives for their honeymoon, and I would love be able to help them go again.
If you would like to give a donation, I would be incredibly grateful and you can do so by cantacting me for cash or donating on this page.
