Weʼre raising £200 to help my mum with breast cancer. She is struggling financially before cancer treatment but now without income from a job money is really low.
- 12 days to go
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 mum is a single mum with two teenagers. She recently found a lump on her breast. She has breast cancer. I'm 15, too young to get a job. My mum has always struggled financially, having a badly paid job as TA and being a single mum. She didn't have a holiday in over 10 years until I used a lot of my bat mitzvah money to take her to majorca for a few days just before she found her lump. I will be spending a lot of time helping her when she is getting cancer treatment by going and buying her shopping and bring it back to the house, cooking for her, helping her get ready etc. She can just about afford weekly food shopping now with a job, but with cancer she will have to not work meaning she will be getting little income. I want to raise money to help towards organic food which Is expensive as well as clothes, a cleaner as well as fixing all the things broken in the house, so fixing all the lights, the hob and oven and other things. Also towards the electricity bill as anyway we have to be careful with the length of time the lights are on and the electrics and heating are on anyway due to the costs.
I will run 15k (anyone who knows me will know how much of a challange this is) but that is the least I can do to help her. Spending my GCSE revision time helping her is completely fine. I love her. I just can't provide money to make her somewhat comfortable as the whole time she's worried about money. She doesn't smoke or anything so the money won't be used on things that kill but on organic food and essentials in any home.
She doesn't like relying on charity but sometimes you can't get what you want.
I will do anything to see my mum smile and be free from worry. She has had M.E since I was little and on top of it now she has Cancer. Please help me help her fight against cancer.
