    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.

    Story

    Mark & Kate Devereux established the Children’s IGAS Awareness Campaign after their son, Lex 7yrs, came within 12hrs of losing his life within just a few days due to the IGAS infection Septic Arthritis.

    Examples of IGAS are Meningitis (infection of the brain fluid), Necrotising Fasciitis (infection of the deeper layers of skin more commonly known as flesh eating disease), Osteomyelitis (infection of the bone), Sepsis (infection of the blood), Septic Arthritis (infection of the joint) and Toxic Shock Syndrome.

    IGAS infections are aggressive and progression is quick. It is estimated up to one in every four people who develop an Invasive Group A Strep infection will die from it and 1 in 5 people die within a week of contracting an IGAS infection. Early Recognition Saves Lives!
