Weʼve raised £120 to help #adollarfordawson
- Funded on Sunday, 17th September 2017
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.
In January this year at 15 months old Dawson Willcock was diagnosed with a rare 0.9 in one million cancer, Hepatoblastoma. Since that day Dawson has tried several different Chemotherapy drugs, none of which are working. In April Dawson's family was told even whilst on chemo, the Cancer had spread to Dawson's lungs. There was a last chance Chemo to try, Dawson started this that day in April. On May 17th 2017, Dawson's family were told the heartbreaking news the chemo has had no effect, the lung tumours have increased in size and his Cancer is chemo resistant.
Dawson needs life saving treatment in America, which is going to cost £500,000. Dawson's family are in talks with a Doctor in Cincinnati, who has cured many children who were classed as terminal in the UK.
Myself and Matt Higgins are supporting the #dollarfordawson campaign by teaming up with local company Proskins on behalf of Welbeck Cricket Club and running the Mansfield 10k to help raise funds to Dawson get the treatment he needs.
You can support Dawson’s campaign by taking a photo with the card supplied ; ‘I am supporting #ADOLLARFORDAWSON’ and post this across social media with the link to this page. So we need your help. We want to raise as much money as we can. So anything you can donate, big or small, will make a difference.
