Weʼve raised £0 to help with funeral and towards living costs for two boys 21 and 13 who lost their hard working carer mother to Leukaemia cancer.

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.
Today I was sitting at a Clinical Supervision and I hear my colleague talk about this lady who were her mentor and very close friend.
My colleague and I both volunteers as Homeless Health Peer Advocates. Once a month we check-in for our clinical supervision to talk about and get support for the volunteering work we do as it could be physically exhausting and emotionally draining.
My colleague was clearly distressed as she talked about her close friend who had lost the battle to Leukaemia cancer. This lady was a hardworking carer who never stopped caring for others despite her own health. She was selfless and put everyone's problems before her own.
She never talked about herself or her problems therefore her passing was sudden quiet shocking.
She was preceded in death by two sons 21 and 13. Her sons are her only family here in UK.
My colleague as a very close friend has taken the responsibility to arrange her friend's funeral.
The money we raise would be used towards the funeral cost and to help the boys for a while.
We desperately need your help.
