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 have 4 major surgeries in the past, as result of those I develop 4 hernias post surgery.
I have a umbilical hernia that was fixed 2 years ago, the operation didn't work.
This is affecting my health considerably and the hernia is bigger and having a big impact on my daily life.
I have seen several doctors and the wait is longer and longer the last time I was told that NHS is not able to pay for the repair, if I can find the money I could fix the hernia privately and get back to a normal life.
I have lost 10 kilos in 3 months due to the issues that the hernia give me I can't eat normally I am constantly in pain and can't stop working as don't get paid for sickness.
I want to be healthier but not have to wait another year with this pain and discomfort day by day.
