Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help my dad enjoy an easier life living with cancer!
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.
So my dad's been diagnosed with cancer.. yes he's not the only person in this sick world that's got this sick disease but he's my only dad..
For my whole life he's provided me with everything I need and still to this day he does everything he can for me.
He's 72 and still works full time..sometimes 7 days a week to provide for our family. He was told when we found out that he has cancer that they could remove it. Simple.
But after much back and fourthing and telling us eventually that the cancer is attached to not only his pancreas but a major artery and that blood vessels are involved it's hard not to lose hope..
Chemo is the only resort. In the hope that they can shrink the cancer eventually to remove it..rather than bave to spend the rest of his life on harsg chemotherapy. He has begun chemo just this week after waiting almost 5 months for treatment to start after being wrongly diagnosed with Gaul stones! This has given me the idea to try and do something to help raise money to help him ease up during his time of illness and get and enjoy life.
I've recently taken mum and dad to Dublin in Ireland, as a small weekend getaway. Due to dad's illness both my parents have had to cancel 4 holidays this year. Holidays of a lifetime they spent their hard earned money saving for and after mum had a major bowel opstation at the end of last year, she deserves a break too!
I hate asking people for things and I also appreciate other's situations.. But charity starts at home. And this is my cause.
Thank you for your support
