    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.


    Last week my sister, Marie Clare was diagnosed with cancer, Hodgkin Lymphoma. It shook us to the core, not only for her sake but for the sake of her unborn child. She is 6 months pregnant. The baby is due December 4th. After having tried to conceive a baby for 7 years, when Marie Clare finally found out she was pregnant she had won the lottery!

    Although there has been few studies on treatment while pregnant, the consultant wants to start chemotherapy straight away. It will steal the precious moments of a mother bonding with her newly born treasure through breast feeding and having the energy and strength to properly care for her infant.

    As we live in Scotland, fortunately we have our national health to thank for free treatment. Sadly Marie Clare has recently changed jobs and only qualifies for statutory maternity pay. This is an extra worry that I would so very much like to alleviate.

    My cause is to give Marie Clare some sort of comfort in knowing that she will have enough money to keep a roof over her head, food to keep her strength up and warm clothes for the new arrival.

    Please be generous!

    I am Marie Clare's younger brother and am trying to find anyway to help. I am a full time student at university and am desperate to ease the worry that she has for herself and her unborn child.
