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.
I have had breast cancer twice. The first time I was 34. I was diagnosed with recurent breast cancer last October and I'm coming to the end of my treatment and surgeries for the time being. I will need my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed given my BRC1 status.
I was offered free complimentary therapy during my treatments and it helped enormously. Having a bit of time to be pampered and not have to worry about cancer for a while is beneficial in so many ways.
It is relaxing and something to look forward to; cancer treatment can be incredibly draining and relentless.
It can help with pain by allowing your body to relax and focus on the pleasant feelings massage delivers.
I would love to train as a massage therapist so I can offer free massage to patients at the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre where I have been treated both times. I would work a couple of days a week offering my service to patients in clinics, receiving chemotherapy or as directed by the hospital.
I will create a website to promote my service. I will share pictures, stories and information. It could also be used by patients who have used my service and want to leave feedback or suggestions for improving the way I manage and run the service.
Ultimately, I have received so much amazing care from the fantastic, dedicated and skilled professionals who make the cancer journey bearable.
I am a single parent and don't have the funds to start this venture without the generosity of others. I am dedicated to making a difference to others experiencing the devastating impact of cancer.
I will run the service as a non profit making service.
The money I have asked for will pay for my training, equipment and cost of aromatherapy and massage oils. I would also like to print some business cards or leaflets to promote my service.
Thanks for reading and please don't hesitate to contact me if you require further information about me or my venture.
Peace and love ❤
