£1,614raised of £2,000 target by 33 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,614 to help Craig Brown pay for vital medical treatment

    Funded on Thursday, 28th September 2017

    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.


    An old school friend of ours Craig Brown, has been diagnosed with Oesophageal Cancer and has recently been told that his cancer has spread. Chemotherapy and possible radiotherapy will only buy him time. Craig has a beautiful young daughter, his world has falllen apart as he fears he will never see his daughter grow up.

    There are hundreds of cases where people have started high dose IV Vitamin C and B17 treatment which boosts the body's immune system and they are still alive years later. This treatment costs £450 a week and as Craig can no longer work he is trying to raise funds to support the costs associated with it.

    To help Craig with his fundraising Dave Turner, Anthony Hughes, Si Jones and Calvin Nicholson are planning on completing the Coast 2 Coast cycle ride. We will complete this gruellingly 140 mile journey in early September and we hope that you will be kind and generous enough to sponsor us for this event via this site and/ or Craig's own page.

    Thank you.

      I knew Joanne and Craig from 1979 onwards. I already donate (and have done for 16 years) to Cancer Research and will continue. It's so awful how our own bodies try to kill us. God bless and let's hope
