    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    I have mainly set up this page to try and help my partner Tina Hudson, fulfil some of her bucket list. She has Terminal Cancer, and has been managing it for around 4 years now, with treatment. We get out and about when we can do, some weeks are a no go as she isn't up to it. She did have cancer before i met her, and after a mastectamy, recovered and was given the all clear, but in 2011/12, the cancer came back, this time more aggressively.

    Would love to take her to Las Vegas as she has dreamed of going over for a long time, and also New York at Christmas time. We know we would need to take a nurse with us too to help look after her and make sure she is okay.

    She copes very well when she is having her good weeks, and makes the most of the time she has, visiting family when we can do, and to go to the cinema too, even though it is uncomfortable for her at times, and she sometimes falls asleep, but is so happy to get out and about while we can. Even with limited funds, we do the best that we can do, I have even given up work to look after her full time. She enjoys once a week going to the local Marie Curie Hospice for day therapies and to meet friends that she has made.

    I know she'd love to meet her favourite Actor, Kevin Costner (probably never happen) and she would also love to meet David Coulthard, the ex F1 racing Driver. Always wanted to go to Silverstone for the British GP, but never made it. And would also love to meet the F1 drivers in the paddock.

    Any excess funds that we make after Tina has fulfilled her wishes, will be donated to the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford as they have done so much for her and really do look after her when she is there.

    The Haas F1 team so gratefully, sent Tina some "goodies" including a signed plaque by their two drivers, to her as a "We're thinking of you" and it really made her day.

      Thank you all for your help and support, this will help towards at least one of Tina's wishes, and we are also donating at least £200 of this to the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford

      Thank you to all have donated, it really does mean a lot to us, we will use the money to make Tina very happy, and take her away for a short holiday in the UK as we haven't raised enough to go to New York or Las Vegas, and we will be donating some of the money to the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford as they really need funds too

      We are slowly heading towards our target, closing on £1,400 but still a long long way to go, so hoping for many more donations to come in, let's try and get to our target so we can fulfil Tina's dreams. We had something really nice come from the Haas F1 team last week just as Tina came back out of hospital.
