    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Athina and Lily's class mate was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma called Burkitt's just before Christmas. All his friends miss him terribly at school. The girls wanted to do something to show their support, by donating their hair to the Princess Trust (supporting children with cancer). Along side this, they would like to raise money to support Seth's chosen charity CCLG. Please read his story from his mum Sally below.

    Seth's Story by Sally Jackson

    On the 11th December 2017 our lives were turned upside down when we learned that our beautiful 6 year old son, Seth, had cancer. His diagnosis was a Non Hodgkin Lymphoma called Burkitt's - one of the most aggressive and fast growing tumours there is, with the ability to double in size every 24 hours. In the 6 weeks since diagnosis, Seth has endured some of the most intensive chemotherapy and treatments, but every single day we are one day closer to getting him well. As a parent, you wonder what you could have done for this to happen to your child, but scientists have no idea why children get cancer. We have decided to try and fundraise a massive £20k for an amazing charity that funds and supports research into childhood cancers to help find cures, causes and less toxic treatments. You are welcome to share and use this page for your own sponsorship of events, the more money we can raise for CCLG, the more research can be done. Cancer in children is extremely rare - a GP will only have an average of 1 child cancer patient under their care in their entire career. In the U.K. there are approximately 11 million children aged 0-14 and only 80 per year will be diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma.

    About CCLG:

    Cancer and Leukaemia Group is a leading children's cancer charity and the UK and Ireland's professional association for those involved in the treatment and care of children with cancer. Each week in the UK and Ireland, more than 30 children are diagnosed with cancer. We bring together professionals to ensure all children receive the best possible treatment and care. We support young patients and their families with our award winning, expert information. We fund and support research into childhood cancers.
