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.


My mother suffers from a condition called Relapsing Polychondritis. This is a rare disease which affects the immune system and the body's cartilage eats away at itself overtime causing disfigurement, constant pain and damage to joints. There is no cure for this disease. Also, there is treatment to try and help, but its all trial and error with individual patients due to it being so rare and not enough past evidence of what works.
She is currently undergoing weekly blood tests, scans and consultation appointments. Some drs do know about it, but only a very few, many have never heard of it.
Her other symptoms include redness, pain and swelling of the ears, nose and throat, shortness of breath and fatigue. Her immune system is extremely low so any infection or common cold she catches damages the cartilage further.

The charity has recently been set up and there are only a small amount of members and not much money raised.

I am running an event at Bristol Street Motors Citroen Leicester on Monday 13th August 9am - 4pm. There will be a cake sale and a raffle.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any donation is very much appreciated.

    Hi Amy, having recently been diagnosed my self I appreciate your mum’s struggle. My GP had no idea what this condition was. I have had to pay to see a consultant privately to get the diagnosis.
