Weʼre raising £420,000 to Helping me buy my Nannas house. To keep it in the family and so my family can use the funds, to fund my grandads care, as he has alzheimer.
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.
I am fundraising for 2 reasons.
1- I would like to buy my Nanna's house to keep it in the family.
2- if I cannot buy the house, any money raised will be put towards my grandads full time care as he has alzheimer.
My Nan was an amazing woman. She saved my life when I was only 15, I was having a very troubling time at home and attempted to commit suicide, she took me in, fed me, clothed me, help me with school, if it wasn't for her I would probably not be here today.
My Nannas had an amazing heart, but Cancer found her. She was diagnosed with ovarian Cancer, this did not faze her though as she believed looking after my grandad with alzheimer was more important than her health, this took a large tole on her and after a year, my grandad was placed into a home for 24/7 care for his alzheimer.
It was at this point I think my Nannas decided it was her time. She had undergone 1 treatment of kemo therapy, had a lump in her troat which made it difficult to breath, eat or drink. On the final day, she was in hospital. The last thing she saw was her great-grandchildren growing and happy and my mother telling her we love her. This is sad to write but happy as well that in her Las hours, we were able to show her we are all OK.
I miss her so much it is unbearable, but now the home my grandad in has said we need to fund his support as there are little to no benefits to cover his care. The sale of the house will give him a cover of 5 years in the home. And that is why my nans house is up for sale. No one wants to do it but we are not well of in the slightest to be able to cover that much for care.
I would like to buy my grandparents house as to keep the memory of my Nannas alive and also its my grandads house, not ours but his and its not fair on him that it needs to be sold so he can get the correct care. Every penny from the sale of the house will be going towards my grandads care. I just want the house so he knows he can come home anytime he wants, even if it's just for a visit.
