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.
NOTE: This is a once in a lifetime holiday that we cannot afford to pay for ourselves, so we would like some help with funding. Thank you.
This is to raise funds so my mum, my dad and I can go on holiday. My mum has recently been diagnosed with early breast cancer, but after surgery to remove all signs [lumps/tumours] has been told she must have chemo and radiation. Her health has never been that great in the last 30 years and we have only ever managed to save up to go on holidays abroad 2 times in my life - I'm 25 and have only been outside of the UK twice for perspective. Today [27/04/2017] she said she would like to see the Taj Mahal and the great wall of China, but I know she would really like to go back to Australia. My dad hates travelling even within the UK, but he has not had a break from work for a long time - he is a workaholic mind working 3 different jobs that pay terribly. I hope that we can raise some money to help travel to these places in style as we have only ever flown economy class. I hope that anyone who comes across this page does not leave any disliking comments, I am only trying to help my mum see the world before she can do so no longer. Thank you.
Summary: Who will benefit - my mum [mostly]
What the funds will be used for; a final holiday as a family
When do we NEED the funds; either by this summer [July/August] or January 2018 [only because we don't know the prognosis yet or what treatment she will actually have] She has said if she survives past September, then the holiday would be like a celebration/victory dance as it were.

The last time we had a holiday was when I was 16 and I'm 26 now. Camping is not fun. Mum wants to go on holiday really badly. I'd love to go away, I haven't had a break in 6 yrs. We all need a break. The money would help us out loads. Thanks for your support.
