£1,951raised of £2,000 target by 72 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,951 to fund private revolutionary cancer treatment which is not available on the NHS for my friend, John Stafford, aged 28.

    London, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 25th July 2017

    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.


    On Sunday 2nd July, I am running a 10k and I am seeking YOUR support to help raise money for my friend's son, John Stafford. John is 28 and has been suffering with Crohn's disease since he was 15. Unfortunately, John's health started to deteriorate in Sept 2015 and in Nov 2015, he was diagnosed with rectal cancer.

    Since then, John has undergone numerous surgeries and treatment with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In April 2017, John was diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer.

    I haven't met John but I do know Angela and I have seen the emotional trauma which she has endured over the last couple of years and yet, despite all of this personal hardship which she is going through, she is always so positive and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone and everyone.

    So I would like to give a little back and help raise some money for John, who is getting married later this year, to fund private revolutionary treatment which isn't available on the NHS.

    I am seeking support from my family and friends and would be very grateful if you could also lend your support to Angela and John in his fight for a better and hopefully healthier future.

    Please please help me do this by sponsoring me £5/£10/£15/your choice - every little helps! I know that Angela and John will be very grateful for your help as will I.

    Thank you.

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank you to everyone who supported me in this race and for your very generous donations. I started off with a target of £1,000 but the speed with which this was reached almost overnight enabled me to double the target. Although we are just short of this, colleagues at work have also lent their support and we have raised close to triple the original target. Mine was a 10k journey but John's journey is longer and I hope this will go some way to helping make it a little smoother for him. Thank you to everyone!
