Weʼre raising £60,000 to buy a bionic leg for Beano who has sadly due to cancer had his leg amputated at the hip meaning he needs an extra special leg!
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.
Lee Albino or Beans / Beano to his mates is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet, even if he is a bit hairy, well very ha ha!
Sadly Beans has been struck down by cancer which has resulted in the loss of his leg.
Its all happened very quickly from a routine knee operation last year to breaking his leg due to the cancer a few weeks ago which then resulted in the operation to remove his leg at the hip last week.
During this time I have never seen such outstanding bravery and dignity while he waited for his operation. And since the operation such a positive outlook on his recovery and his future, GO BEANO!
Once the wound heals Beans faces 6 months of intensive chemo and then the journey begins to walk again with an extra special prosthetic leg.
As such we have decided ( Gav Seaholme's idea what a star ), to start this crowd funding page to raise money so Beano can have the best leg possible to help him for many many years to come!
You don't realise how special people are until things like this happen and Beano is very special!
I can honestly say that Beans is truly deserving of this support and together we can make "the new normal" for him and Lauren as great as possible for the new life they have infront of them, apparently the good legs even have "Bluetooth" and if it has a disco mode Beano will be back busting some moves before we know it!
Dig deep guys Beano needs our help and lets make his journey to recovery a smooth one, help him for many years with the best leg and make him the coolest kid on the block with his bionic leg!
Over to you!
