£1,410raised of £7,000 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,410 to help fund my Mum's urgent chemotherapy sessions & any post chemo needs. The 1st is due on 17 May 2018. Urgent donations are needed please.

    Funded on Friday, 31st August 2018

    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.


    My parents are both retired now and live in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Their monthly income/pension is $80.00 a month.

    Recently, my Mum (who is 65years old) became unwell, and together, we somehow managed to pay for her to see a GP to get some tests done. This then led to her being referred to a surgeon who operated on her to remove a polyp from her abdomen. (A biopsy was carried out on the polyp).

    The Surgeon referred her to an Oncologist. More tests were carried out and following the biopsy results, my Mum now needs CHEMOTHERAPY.

    We desperately and urgently need help with raising the funds needed to pay for her chemotherapy treatment.

    The total cost is about US$9608.00: (about £7067.64).

    My family and I are so grateful for any funds people can give towards saving my Mum's life. She is an amazing woman whose love and kindness has inspired so many people over the years.

    Thank you for your help and support everyone.

      Hello all. Mum will be getting her 4th session of chemo this month. However, with £0.00 funds I'm not sure how this is going to happen. In Zimbabwe, no money means no treatment. This is breaking my heart. She needs about £3000 to complete chemo. Please remember her in your busy lives and continue to donate. Stay with us till the end of her journey. We can't do it without you. Thank you.

      Hi all. Just an update. Mum had her 2nd session of chemo on Wednesday. This is all thanks to your kind donations. She is doing her best to remain positive about everything, we're so proud of her, and Dad who's taking such good care of her. There is £915.00 left from the past donations; that's enough for just the 3rd session. Please continue to pray and donate what you can so that she continues to get the treatment she desperately needs. (5 more sessions to go). Thank you.

      Hi everyone. Just a quick update. Mum's in her 1st 3week break before her 2nd chemo treatment. She's doing OK & is grateful to all who have helped her reach this point. Donations have been received through the JustGiving website, and there have also been cash donations from friends & family. Therefore, the total raised so far is £1 690.27. WELL DONE EVERYONE. THAT'S SO AMAZING. THANK YOU!! However, we still need to raise about £5 309.73. Please please continue to support my Mum. Together we can help her to receive the treatment she needs.
