Cancer treatment and recovery can cost a family a small fortune, especially when the cancer sufferer needs to travel overseas to have treatment for their condition.
Crowdfunding enables you to raise money among your family, friends and the wider community in order to achieve your goal.
Supporting Alex's Fight
When New Zealander Alex was diagnosed with cancer, his friends back in the UK decided to start crowdfunding to provide the family with extra support.
After his friend Scott was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Chris raised over £21,000 to fund Scott's wish to remain at home with his wife and children for as long as possible.
Helping Marc through treatment
Marc's friend Darren raised £2347 to help him get comfortably through treatment, after a brain tumour diagnosis meant he was unable to work.
