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.
When my wife was diagnosed with stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma for the first time in 2008 I never thought that 10 years later she'd still be battling this disease. I never thought I'd be crowd-funding for her cancer treatment.
In 10 years, she has tried all treatments available, different types of chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, immunotherapy, herbs, supplements, but the cancer keeps coming back. In september we got the devastating news that the cancer is still growing. Her only option in the NHS would be a maintenance drug that, if it worked at all, would only stop the advance of the cancer for a few more months, but it is a very toxic drug for her already compromised health.
At 36 years old she wants to be healed, not just survive for another year or two.
Her best chance now is a private Hospital in Mexico that offers modern cancer treatments such as Metabolically Supported Chemotherapy, Photodynamic therapy, Hyperthermia treatment, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, IV CK3, GCMAF Immunotherapy and a supervised Gerson diet.
However this treatment costs over £42,000 for three months, plus travel, consultation and follow up costs. The only option we have left is to try and fund the treatment ourselves and hopefully she will get the life-saving treatment she needs.
Please help with anything you can – every penny will be more than we expect and we'll extremely grateful for anything you can contribute towards it.
Thank you so very much!
