    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Hi,

    My name is Ben Sewell. I was diagnosed with a rare form of liver disease (Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis - PSC) with no known cause or cure. I was eventually placed on the liver transplant waiting list and amazingly after 9 months I received a suitable donor liver and underwent a successful transplant; late September 2016.

    My first goal is simple: Pay what I owe. I do owe so many people and organisations so very much, my life for one. Being able to see my wife and son again, is another.
    My second goal is harder: Raise awareness for PSC and NHS Organ Donation. Get more people signed up as donors; as the numbers are woeful compared to those in need. Dying before you make it off the list, a reality for so many families, just should happen.

    Here is a bit of information on the charities etc

    Raising money and awareness for the British Liver Trust (https://www.britishlivertrust.org.uk), NHS Organ Donation (https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk) and PSC Support (http://www.pscsupport.org.uk) through various fundraising activities throughout late 2016 and 2017.

    Here are the events that I will be taking part in (will be kept updated):

    I will be adding at least 2 further events (including 1 x 50+ mile road event and 1 x MTB trail/downhill event) to this calendar, once I can find the right event - it must be suitably difficult otherwise it will be boring!

    Cheers
    Ben
