Weʼre raising £1,000 to help my mum visit her sister and be her carer after having a life threatening bleed on he brain.
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.
My Auntie Anji has recently had a severe bleed on her brain, leaving her with memory loss, loss of movement and has had to start learning how to do even the simplest things such as eating and drinking again. My poor mum, Dianne, is one of 5 siblings. Her brother died not too long ago, as well as both her parents. Another brother lives in Australia and another who will not speak to her. The hospital has decided that a family member needs to be with Anji in the hospital to help her regain a sense of who she is, and then afterwards to stay with Anji in her house and care for her until she can take care of herself. We are not well off at all, my mum has spent every penny she has going up to stay for a week at a time, and we just can't afford what the hospital is asking for. I would never normally do this, but my mum deserves some help. Please, if you could give anything at all to help her it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you x
