Weʼre raising £40,000 to Help Fund Dawn's Life Saving Surgery
- Evesham, UK
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 aunt, Dawn needs to raise £40,000 for Baroreceptors Therapy, an operation which she needs to treat hypertension and save her life. She has applied for funding but the NHS have refused this many times.
She has been in and out of hospital for the past 10 years because her blood pressure is extremely high but things have worsened in the last 3 years with her stays in hospital becoming more frequent. She now desperately needs this operation as her blood pressure being continuously high for so long, has had a huge impact on her major organs. Her heart and kidneys have been damaged and she is serverely partially sighted.
This operation would not only save her life but would improve her quality of life enormously. She has been told if she does not receive the operation soon she is at risk of a catastrophic event such as a major stroke.
Please give whatever you can, no matter how small.
