£5,349raised of £25,000 target by 231 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,349 to help support a family whose two year old daughter has been diagnosed with leukaemia.

    Bristol, United Kingdom
    Time left
    Funded on Thursday, 8th December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    This is Bella, she is a two year old little girl with a heart of gold. Bella's parents Karl & Lisa recently noticed a lump develop on Bellas abdomen which has turned out to be Neuroblastoma a rare type of cancer affecting around 1 in 100,000 children.

    Bella's family are hard working yet need to spend time with Bella whilst she is in Bristol Children's Hospital having numerous tests to find out if the cancer has spread across her body.

    Whilst her mum has left work to spend time with Bella at the hospital her father is still having to work to compensate for lost money and to support the family.

    No family should have to make a choice between money or spending precious time with your baby and this is why this page has been created.

    Money raised will be given to the family allowing them to spend time with Bella by her bedside, any additional money raised can also be used for any treatments which may be required following the most recent biopsy and ensure that she receives the best quality care.

    I will keep all who have donated up to date with updates whenever possible.

    The world is full of horrible news which we can not change or influence, this however is something we can all influence and make a change for this family and little Bella.

    Many thanks for your time.


    **UPDATE** Fri - 11th

    Finally the doctors have managed to secure a diagnosis after numerous tests and biopsies.

    Bella has leukaemia and the doctors believe this will be treatable at this stage, Bella is currently being transferred to haematology within the same ward but a different team. Treatment is to start ASAP.

    Update from the family is that "We can beat this cancer, we WILL beat this cancer"

    The family are "hugely relieved to receive a confirmed diagnosis" after being left so long without knowing.

    The lump will not be removed but chemotherapy will be begin with the aim to shrink the lump.

    The real fight begins now, thank you for your continued support

      Hey all, I have updated the main story with the latest update as this area had a limited character amount. The generosity shown here has been amazing, and lots of people are running individual fundraisers to help towards Bella's fund. Strangers, friends and family some from the other side of the world have been donating significant amounts of money to help support Bella's cause. Now with a confirmed diagnosis the battle begins to fight back against this cancer. Please, please continue sharing this story with all to raise awareness
