Weʼre raising £10,000 to help make the changes to our house for my son who has muscular dystrophy
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.
In 2011 my son was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is a progressive muscle wasting condition which means he will be in a wheel chair in the next few years and the maximum life expectancy means he might live into his early thirties. (There are lots of good charity web sites that have loads of information about the condition)
But that's the future, right now he is 9, still able to walk about and needs a house that meets his changing needs. We are roughly 50,000 short of making it perfect for him but also his little sister, who at 6 yrs old, still finds it hard to understand why Finn gets a little bit more attention than her.
