    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.


    My wife is terminally ill with a brain tumour grade 4 glioblastoma which comes with a average life expectancy of 12 to 18 months.
    So far she has had 2 operations to remove the tumour from her brain,the first was April 17 and more recently in January 18, and in February she got admitted to hospital with a infection, for which she has spent 8 weeks in Derriford hospital.
    She has recently returned from hospital and now has mobility aids to help her cope with everyday issues.
    Kaana has a son who is nearly 17 and she would like to spend more time with.
    She also has some dreams that she would like to achieve before time runs out like a holiday for her family, days out with her family etc.
    Kaana is a caring and generous person always putting others first and I think that at this point in her life she deserves to be put first and for me to try and achieve her dreams I have had to set this up.
    It means everything to me to achieve everything I can for her. I have also recently had to give up work to care for her full time, which we are now struggling a bit.
    So I am hoping that the public can really help me to achieve this goal.

      Kaana is having surgery on Thursday 19th April to have a shunt put in to drain the excess fluid, hopefully this will help her come home again. After 8 weeks then a week at home then back to the hospital again hopefully we can spend some time together after this.

    I am Chris Calfe and I am trying to raise money for my wife Kaana Calfe who is terminally ill. I have recently given up work to care for her full time as Kaana's mobility has deteriorated after coming out of hospital recently.
