Weʼre raising £200,000 to Help Heidi Fight cancer and live to raise her boys

Nantwich, UK

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Heidi is a 45 year old non-smoking mother to two boys (aged 7 and 3), she is wife to Dave and a great friend to many. She's had varying careers from water engineer in Africa, swimming teacher and actor to project manager .

Last year Heidi was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Heidi is 'fighting to live', 'fighting to be there to raise her boys' and 'fighting to push conventional medicine into accepting that she has a right to hope, be positive and search for the 'holy grail of cancer cures.''

Heidi needs targeted therapy and immunotherapy drugs now to continue her fight. However, these are expensive (£5,000-£10,000 per month) and she can't get them through the NHS. So we need to act now to raise money for Heidi to continue her fight. We have a big target of £200,000 to make sure she can get all the treatment she needs.

Please help Heidi continue this journey of courage and allow her to raise her boys' by donating to 'Help Heidi Fight' #positivityincancer

As we keep trying to raise funds for Heidi, it is hard to keep asking people. Could you help by giving on a regular basis? Could you make a small change and donate monthly a small amount? Giving up a coffee a week, a magazine, or sharing a journey to save a bit and donate it every month, would mean the world to Heidi.

Could you help, for a few months? You can do this through Justgiving and stop it at any time. Just choose to donate monthly.

    Thank you to everyone for your support, it really does help me fight this. I've recovered from my latest round of targeted radiotherapy to the brain; another tumour came back. Its also returned to my spine, luckily only in L3 & L4 & the hospital have agreed to treat it with targeted radiotherapy. I'm a very lucky girl. I'm still waiting for the results of my lung biopsy which I hope will give me some positive news regarding new treatment options. In the meantime I'm throwing even more at it to weaken & ultimately kill the cancer. Heidi xx

    I'm feeling stronger each day and a corner has definitely been turned. I had felt powerless to control a slow downhill slide in my health since Sept last year. But today I feel brighter and I'm slowly getting stronger & trying not to get frustrated; patience isn't my middle name. The intravenous vitamin C is definitely helping and I've re-started oxygen therapy. I'll continue to throw the kitchen sink at my cancer, and as such the time has come when I need to withdraw funds to continue my fight. Thank you for your continued support! xxx

    I'm feeling thankful. And I feel much more like me. My brain mets are stable, and I'm improving day by day now that radiotherapy has finished. I've started intravenous vitamin C, which has given me an almost instantaneous lift, & I hope it will kill many cancer cells along the way. . Thank you for your continued support. Heidi xxx
