Weʼre raising £500 to fund hospital transport costs for my son who is battling a very rare and potentially deadly disease.
- Louth, UK
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.
My 19 year old son, Callum, has recently been diagnosed with a very rare and potentially deadly disease called Castlemans Disease. There is very little known about this disease and there are only 4 doctors in the whole of the UK who specialise in trying to cure this disease. Callum lives in Louth, Lincolnshire with myself, his dad and siblings and is now facing many trips to either London or Manchester for treatment to hopefully put him into remission, until a cure can be found. Callums is potentially facing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Unfortunately this is not a cost we can afford on our own, and Callum is not eligible for any help with transport costs. This has now left us with no option but to ask if people can donate any amount to help us cover the costs. Any additional money will be donated to cdcn.org (castleman disease collaborative network) in their fund raising efforts to find a cure.
