    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    My beautuful cousin Karen has been like a big sister to me, all my life she has been there for me through everything. We spent hours at my Grandads and together we felt like we could deal with anything!

    She is 45 years old and has just been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. As a family, we're absolutely devastated and are finding this diagnosis impossible to deal with. She plans to take the treatment that they're offering her to prolong her life long enough for her to marry her soul mate Warren.

    She wants the world to know how much he means to her and I want to help her fulfil this. By setting this page up to help raise money to fulfil this final wish. we also have cake sales & raffles going everyone is pulling together for Karen as a family should.
    I'm hoping to raise enough money to also pay towards her funeral. Karens parents are both in they're 70's & Karen's biggest burden at the moment is leaving her parents to struggle with paying for her funeral.

    I'm Karen's cousin Donna. I'm raising money for Karen who has always been more like a big sister to me. The news has come as a big shock to all of us & we are still trying to come to terms with it.
