Weʼre raising £25,000 to Send as many children diagnosed with eye cancer Retinoblastoma on a holiday of a lifetime! I am now 12, a cancer survivor, they need this!
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 son was diagnosed with having cancer in both his eyes at the tender age 9 months old. The tumor in his left eye was so advanced that there was no option but to remove his eye to save is life. He under went 6 months of chemotherapy, laser therapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions and then the next big battle, going though school with a prosthetic eye. His hearing was damaged in one ear due to the chemotherapy and as he has grown his confidence has taken a few knocks too. He will be 13 next year and to mark this huge achievement I would really like to take him on a trip of a lifetime to Disney Florida to celebrate his amazing courageous life. He is a very loving child despite all of his childhood trauma. He has spent all of his life in and out of hospitals and never complains. Instead he shows compassion and empathy for those he sees around him on the hospital words, truly inspirational, a remarkable human being. I have raised my son and his younger brother on my own, I feel like I am letting him down by not being financially able to give him this gift which he so truly deserves. I work full time and pay my way through life, however this is something which is truly out of my reach. Please help me achieve this dream for a special person who never gave up.
