Weʼre raising £2,000 to Send Grace on her Dream Hoilday to see The Ellen Show Live! Teenage Cancer Warrior Grace

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.
On 24th April 2017, our beautiful little Grace was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in her right leg, just above her knee. She had been misdiagnosed with "growing pains" earlier in the year, but otherwise had been leading a normal and happy life, like any other sporty, fun loving 13 year old. Since her diagnosis she has already undergone 12 weeks of intensive chemo and on 10th August she had surgery to remove the tumour, her entire knee and the surrounding muscle and bone. She will now have to endure an additional 30 weeks of treatment. Throughout all of this, she has never lost that smile!
Her mother Jayne has been forced to give up her job to care for Grace, as she needs round the clock care both in hospital and when she comes home. Lots of friends and family have asked how they can help, we have therefore decided to set up a fundraising page, so that we can raise enough money to send Grace and her family on a much needed holiday after her treatment finishes next year and something for them all to look forward to over the coming months as Grace recovers from the arduous chemo and surgery.
In true Grace style, she has requested that some of the money raised be used to buy special gifts and treats for the amazing friends that she has made in hospital, so that they can have something special too!
