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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


James was diagnosed in 2016 with a brain tumour called an Anaplastic Ependymoma. It is a very aggressive cancerous brain tumour with a very high chance of re-occurence. He had the tumour removed and a year of Chemotherapy, but unfortunately in Feb 2018 his tumour came back. The surgeon's once again removed the tumour but this time it was decided that radiotheraphy would be the best treatment for him. The NHS then approved for James to travel to Florida in the US for Proton Beam Radiotheraphy. This will last around 9 weeks and finish mid June 2018. We, at Just Gents know the family and the boys very well - James also has a twin brother, and we would like to help them & their parents by raising money to help fund the trip to Florida which is costing a significant amount. Any amount, however small will go directly to the family. Please feel free to share as this will also raise awareness for Anaplastic Ependymoma, its research and treatment. Many thanks.
