Weʼre raising £1,000 to To help buy much needed specialist medication for Charlotte that the NHS have refused to carry on funding
- East Grinstead
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We have 15 people running the 5k Mud Monster run in East Grinstead on Sunday 9th June. We are hoping to raise money to help Charlotte to afford some of the medication and supplies. Charlotte explained a little bit about her medication and illness below:
"One of the medications I am on is an anti-emetic (anti sickness) it is given both injection or IV. Without it I cannot even sip water. Due to my GP cutting budgets and it being too expensive, they are refusing me the correct amount of the drug for the entire month. Although it is on my repeat prescriptions they can’t afford an entire month. They are also arguing that they will not supply the needles and syringes required to administer the medication. Simply due to the cost of it. I was told to either ‘buy the needles on amazon’ or ‘go to a needle exchange’ which I think is absolutely disgusting. You cannot guarantee that needles are sterile from buying them from a stranger on the internet! And I am not happy to have to go to a needle exchange on my own In my condition due to money! As you can imagine someone that needs a simple drug to stop you being in A&E and live a relatively normal life and being told it’s money related is heart breaking! £500 would be able to supply Charlotte with a box of 100 needles, a supply of 50 sterile syringes and an entire month supply of anti sickness. Thank you to everyone who even just reads my story it means the world to me! I also have a Facebook awareness page called ‘Behindhersmile’ which I use to document my ongoing treatment and condition."
