£63,480raised of £75,000 target by 1333 supporters

    Weʼve raised £63,480 to fund treatment abroad for my friend and mother Amelia Martin. (nee Newby) who has a rare terminal brain tumour.

    Funded on Monday, 30th July 2018

    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

    Amelia is my best friend. She is 41 years old. She has a 6 year old son and a loving husband. She has a rare tumour also found in children known as a grade 3 papillary Meningioma. Her tumour is growing rapidly and in an awkward direction and because of iits location in her brain is inoperable and untreatable with radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Already the tumour is affecting the muscles in her face, her sight and her hearing. Eventually it will kill her. In the last 4 years, Amelia has had 2 operations and radiotherapy on this tumour, and surgery to remove another smaller brain tumour. No further treatment exists for this type of rare tumour in the UK. However a clinic in Prague can offer Proton Beam Therapy and in some cases this has been shown to be successful. Prague have approved Amelia for treatment but the NHS have not approved her for funding.Because the tumour has grown 5 centimetres since November the clinic is advising that Amelia has the treatment urgently.

    The money raised through Just Giving will fund Amelia's treatment abroad as well as any other treatment that she may need. Any money not spent on treatment and associated costs will be donated to cancer charities.

    Amelia is the kindest, most positive person I have ever met. She is a much loved mum, wife, daughter and sister.She wants to fight this tumour so that she can watch her son grow up and be around him for as long as possible. So please help me to raise funds. Myself and her family would be so grateful. Thankyou.

      Amazing to see that people are still donating and fundraising thanks so much. Amelia is now in a hospice receiving the care she needs. I saw her yesterday and she’s expressed her gratitude for everything that’s been done for her. She has been so positive throughout all of this and remains so, she Is an inspiration to us all. I’ll keep you updated.
