The costs associated with a cancer diagnosis can be a significant hurdle for families at an already difficult time.
Many people have raised money through crowdfunding to get access to new and pioneering treatments that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
Crowdfunding is also a practical way for friends, family and the community to come together and help raise money not only to fund treatment costs but also for living expenses, travel and accommodation needs and to help make memories.
