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.


On the 3rd of October 2017 our son Max stopped breathing and was taken to the Royal hospital for children in Glasgow.
He was put into the paediatric intensive care unit(ICU) on a life support machine for 4 days which done all of his breathing for him.
While he was in ICU Max had to go through various tests and scans which included an MRI scan, full body scan, lumbar puncture and various blood tests.
On the 4th day we spoke to the consultants who went through the tests results and they said they couldn't find what had caused Max to stop breathing.
We were still awaiting various blood tests to come back however they told us they would start to remove his ventilator to see how he coped breathing on his own again and they would monitor him overnight.
The next day we saw Max without the tubes in his mouth and he was breathing great on his own, we were then told that they were going to remove his oxygen tubes and that we would be moved to a general ward to be looked after while we awaited the blood test results.
The ICU has different rooms and in each room there are 4 bed bays where 2 nurses care for the children 24/7, this was where Max was cared for.
We weren't allowed to stay with Max overnight while he was in ICU but we were allowed to stay with him for as long as we wanted.
Max was only 3 weeks old and spent a total of 2 weeks in hospital between the ICU unit and the general ward.
I'm sure as you have read with all the tests, staff, equipment etc this can be expensive for the hospital to provide and we are so grateful for everything they done for our son, they saved his life! We can never repay them but we want to raise money to support the hospital.
My partner Gary, Max's daddy and dad Douglas, Max's papa will be taking part in a sky dive organised by the hospital on the 15th June 2018.
They have a total of £550 each to raise, any donation is greatly appreciated.
We hope to plan charity nights, bake sales and whatever we can do to raise money.
