Weʼre raising £4,000 to to help a friend have lipoedema surgery

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.


A friend of mine has just found out that she is unable to have lipoedema treatment on the NHS. She has had this condition since puberty and has struggled all of her life with body issues even getting to the point where she had starved herself into anorexia, she has severe anxiety and it affects not only her day and her life but that of her children's. People have made fun of her so called 'abnormal shape' this made her stop doing what she loves, singing, because too many people would make fun of her.
It has become so painful for her and is becoming tender to touch and never gets better. Even with the small action of playing with the children can leave her legs really soar and tender to the touch. It is likely to affect her mobility soon if it doesn't get sorted, she is at rik of cellulitis and blood poisoning and clots in her legs because of the inflammation. She is also suffering from bad back pain due to this and using strong pain killers to numb the pain even though it can still be felt
She is at the point in which it is affecting every aspect of her life and her children's too. If mobility was to be lost it would not only be devastating to her but to her children's lives too.
There is a fabulous surgeon the Spire in Cardiff, Dr Amar Ghattaura who has trained in Japan to perform the surgery needed to slow the progression of the condition and keep her Mobile for as long as possible. A procedure called Lymph-sparing, water-assisted liposuction can remove the diseased tissue.
But she cant afford it. she needs your help and i know she would never ask herself, so seeing how this disease affects her i have decided to do what i can to help her try and live a normal life.

Please, if there is ANYTHING you can do to help her and her family, please do. Even the smallest donation makes a difference and i know she will be extremely grateful... and i can just imagine how it would change her life to be able to have the surgery.
Thank you for reading.
