    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.

    Story

    Me & my hubby Kevin have decided to take on the National 3 Peaks Challenge to be completed in 24 hrs on August 18th @07:00 finishing on 19th @ 07:00hrs. We will be staring at Ben Nevis then on to Scafell Pike and finally finishing once climbing Snowdon through the early hours of the morning.,

    we are doing this to help raise funds for our friend Tom Stevenson and his diagnosis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis otherwise known as Motor Neurone Disease.

    Tom was diagnosed back in 2013 and given a 2-5 year death sentence.He is married to a wonderful wife Lian and they have a beautiful 4 yr old daughter Orla.

    There is currently NO CURE for Motor Neurone Disease but Toms Friends & Family have researched alternative medication from around the world that is not available on the NHS, they feel this is helping Tom against this horrible disease.

    The medication is made up of various supplements and Oils with a cost of just over £800 a month, plus various treatments taking the total to over £3000 per month.

    About MND

    MND is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones.

    Degeneration of the motor neuronesn leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

    The muscles first affected tend to be those in the hands, feet and mouth, dependent on which type of the disease you are diagnosed with.

    MND does not usually affect the senses or the bladder and bowel. Some people may experience changes in thinking and behaviour, often referred to as cognitive impairment, but only a very few will experience severe cognitive change.

    The effects of MND can vary enormously from person to person, from the presenting symptoms, and the rate and pattern of the disease progression, to the length of survival time after diagnosis.

    With the help Tom receives from people it really does make a difference to his life and his smile keeps getting bigger..

    Awareness

    Raising awareness of MND is very important not only for Tom but for fellow sufferers and the donations will go towards giving tom a better life for him and his family and also help towards finding a cure for this terrible condition.

    This challenge has not been entered into lightly but we really want to try and raise awareness about MND and also raise what we can to help Tom, Lian & Orla have as much quality together as they can without the stress of funding the medication & treatment.

    Please give as generously as you can as every penny will help to get to our target.Lets see if we can go above and beyond.

    Thank you for your wonderful support and please continue to donate.Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    From the bottom of our hearts.
