Weʼre raising £2,000 to help make precious memories for Freddie & Ella
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.
As you all know my husband matt was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2012 and all you amazing people helped us raise money for him to receive treatment in oklahoma in 2014. Due to that we were then able to go on to have our second child Ella. All was well until March 2018 we got the dreaded news his tumour had started to grow again. we were just starting to get our heads around that to then be told 11 weeks later its grown again and without the treatment of Chemotherapy he would possibly be looking at months. Now chemo isnt going to save him its only going to prolong life but for how long we dont know! It could only be a couple more precious years which brings me to why i am wanting to raise some money!
As you know we have 5 year old Freddie and a 1 year old Ella, freddie will be sat down in the next few weeks and told of the situation, a task i never thought i would have to do and one a parent should never have to do either! From now we intend to make as many happy fun memories for our babies as possible.
I didnt just want to ask for donations for nothing so i have entered myself into the Bournemouth marathon which i will be running on sunday 7th october. I want to complete a marathon and have Matt be there to see me cross that finish line. if anyone wishes to come down to support on the day i would appreciate that also.
thank you for taking the time to read my page lots of love Hollie Matt Freddie & Ella xx
