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.
In March this year I was given the news that I had a growth in my bowel, it was possibly cancerous and it needed to come out. I decided that no matter what the diagnosis I wasn't going to let it get the better of me. I wasn't going to let it scare me. As the nurses at Treliske Hospital in Truro, Cornwall said to me, we just needed to "get it in a bucket" and deal with. And that's what we did.
In April I had an operation to remove just over a third of my bowel, taking the tumour, which was confirmed as cancer, and the surrounding area and thankfully the surgery was a success. I had a top surgeon, thanks Mr May, and the care I received whilst in hospital was fantastic. I will need to have a course of chemotherapy as a precaution, starting in a few weeks but I have always been positive. And whilst I am having my treatment I would love to be able to raise a lot of money for charities and local projects along the way.
Your help would be appreciated so much.

About the fundraiser
Over the last three months I have been diagnosed with bowel cancer, operated on successfully and I'm now about to start chemo to finish it off! I have refused to let it beat me down and would love to take this opportunity to raise funds for deserving charities and projects.
