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.
Sadly, dad, who worked all of his life, was forced to live off his pension which he had drawn out early ready for his retirement years. This money was then seen as savings by the government and when he was too poorly to work, he was only offered £73 a week for both him and my mum to live on. This means that he spent the last year and a half living on pension funds and was even at one point forced back to work just to survive financially despite battling Lung, Liver and Finally Brain cancer.
My mum who is already devastated by such a loss also has the financial burden and worry that follows when a loved one passes. People aren't always aware of the implications that comes with a cancer diagnosis.
As a family, we are now wanting to give my amazing father the send off he deserves whilst helping my mum to cope financially at such a distressing time.
If anyone could spare any change, your donation would mean the world.
