Weʼre raising £3,000 to give Kieren & his children a holiday to remember.
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.
When bringing children up, its difficult to give them everything they want and deserve. But whats harder is giving them what they want & deserve while suffering with 2 long term illnesses.
Kieren is 33 years of age and suffers with 2 long term illnesses. Firstly being type 1 diabetic, this can have such a influence on moods, body strength & going out & about. Suffering since the age of 17, kieren has tried and coped with being type 1 diabetic, Controlled with insulin.
But to also suffer with an illness there is no proven medication for? Its heartbreaking as a partner to see & cope with.
Cylic vomiting syndrome is an illness caused by a chemical in the brain. This chemical gets over released when Kieren is excited, nervous, stressed, has aniexty and more. Normal bodies are able to cope with this chemical however cvs suffers bodies way of coping is to vomit violently for days on end, also known as a episode.
There is no cure for this. Episodes can happen from once a week to once a month to 3-6 months. Lasting from a day, to 16days in kierens worst episode. There is no telling when its coming. Or anyway to stop it.
Being self employed as employers dont understand its hard. Being able to pay bills, live & give children everything they want & deserve.
I am setting up this funraiser to get the funds to be able to take kieren & the children to disneyland paris.
A dream of children & adults alike!
Having never been on holiday with his 2 children , i would like to suprise him and my 2 step children to the ultimate holiday. One to remember. Probably kierens only holiday with the children. Being so ill and not getting any younger this could be his only opportunity. Diabetics have a shorter life expectancy by almost 20 years but to also suffer from an illness that causes internal damage on a regular basis is even worse!
Id love for any donations! Just to be able to take these amazing 3 away! For a week, to the park, hotel & food costs, to forget all the seriousness in our lives and enjoy time as a family. Before its too late.
I will do funraisers throughout the next 6 months to help raise even more!
Any donations are appreciated so much!!!
Thanks for reading.
