£18,310raised of £50,000 target by 116 supporters

Weʼre raising £50,000 to Help Debbie Smith - the tall glamorous one, blast the glioblastoma (brain tumour), tackle the tumour, confront the cancer and make memories.

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.


Debbie Smith is our gorgeous, fun loving amazing sister in law. She is Mum to our beautiful nieces age 7 and 9. Just before Christmas Debs was given the devastating news that she has a very aggressive and incurable brain tumour.

We are setting up this fund for three reasons. The first is so that Debs can take part in medical trials which have very positive results in terms of lengthening life, particularly for someone like Debs who is young and fit. One such example is a drugs repurposing trial which Debs is already signed up to, it demonstrates positive results but is costly.

The second is so that Debs can take part in immunotherapy treatment. This is very expensive and not available on the NHS for glioblastomas at the moment. Pursuing this is likely to cost around £200,000 at a private oncology clinic in Germany.

The third reason is to create a making memories fund for Debs and the girls.

If you are able to make a contribution however big or small we would really appreciate it and so would Debs.

With love

Dee, Liz and Katie Smith
