    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.


    James was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2011. MS is a degenerative disease with no cure; it affects mobility, sight, bladder, bowel, swallowing, breathing, sexual function,cognitive fact, just about everything that we take for granted. HSCT uses stem cells harvested from the patient to 'reset' the immune system, but first, the faulty immune system must be wiped out with chemotherapy. It is an invasive, but tried and tested procedure.

      ...We will be contacting everyone that's made a donation to offer a refund, but any money that we have left will go to our local MS Society where James and I have been volunteers for 4 years, and other MS related causes. Please contact us if you'd like a refund.

      Another Lotto ticket - another loss - but on the bright side, another £2 in to the fundraising pot.
