    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.


    The following is from Ollies family....

    Please help us raise funds for our much loved son to get treatment for brain cancer.

    Oli went to the Royal Latin School Buckingham and then on to Uni. He graduated from Pembroke College Cambridge in 2013. He was 22 and just starting out in life with his dream job when he had a seizure completely out of the blue. That was in August 2014.

    Tests were done and this resulted in Oli being diagnosed in December 2014 with a particularly aggressive brain tumour. He was given the awful prognosis of 12 to 18 months left to live.

    Oli is the most positive person I know. Not once has he complained about all his treatment or said "why me". He is surrounded by family and friends who love him so very much. He leaves a little bit of his heart with every person he meets. Once met never forgotten!

    He successfully underwent radiotherapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy. This took 15 months. One month after finishing treatment Oli ran the London marathon in less than 4 hours. He raised 60k including gift aid for Brain Tumour Research.

    He went back to work full time the day after the marathon to a very demanding job. All subsequent scans showed improvement thanks to the treatment he had received and he returned to a normal lifestyle. Unfortunately last year more tests revealed the tumour had returned. He has recently undergone brain surgery to remove the affected tumour. An unfortunate side effect of the surgery has resulted in loss of peripheral vision. He starts chemotherapy next week which will last for between 9 and 12 months.

    His oncologist would like him to receive a vaccine made from a culture developed from the tumour they have removed. This vaccine is called DC Vax-L.

    Now we are asking for your help to fund this vaccine which is unavailable on the NHS to enable this young man to continue with his wedding plans and have a wonderful future with his fiancée.

    Gigi has been by his side from day one and has been the most incredible support to him and us. Oli and Gigi got engaged just before Christmas. Wedding plans are going ahead for summer 2019.

    With your help to raise this huge amount of money we will have the most wonderful day to look forward to. I will be the Mother of the Groom.

    Please share this far and wide, with your help we can make this happen.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.
