    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.


    Jordan and I got together 4 years ago and instantly we knew that we would want to have a family of our own.

    In 2013 we decided to start trying for a baby, we didn't expect to conceive quickly so we were shocked that after only one month I was pregnant. I had an early scan at 8 weeks and found that we had conceived twins however one had stopped developing at around 6 weeks, we were just relieved that we had one baby to focus on. Unfortunately the pregnancy didn't go smoothly and at just under 18 weeks I went into labour and gave birth to a beautiful and perfect baby boy. He was too small to survive and unfortunately our baby boy died, we named him Wesley, he was born 26th November 2013.
    In early April 2014 Jordan found a lump in his left testicle, went to the Dr and after many tests, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, we were devastated. He had his testicle removed and froze his sperm to help us in the future.
    We were told to keep trying for a baby on our own, if we hadn't conceived after 12 mths to seek help, which we did. After many tests we were approved by the NHS for 2 cycles of ICSI treatment, we started in October 2015.
    Unfortunately our first cycle was unsuccessful so after a little break we tried again and in May this year we got our much longed for positive pregnancy test, we were over the moon.
    I had a couple of early scans, the last one at 10 weeks, nothing could have prepared us for our 12 week scan when we were given the devastating news that our baby had died 2 weeks previously, we were heartbroken.
    We now find ourselves without any more NHS help and after seeing another specialist have been told that my egg reserve is too low to wait to save for another cycle and we need to act fast.
    Unfortunately the treatment we require is very expensive and we are struggling to fund this on our own so I am putting our story out there in the hope that people may want to help us, in any way they can, to achieve our dream of being parents.

      A bit of payback for 2 of the most "spesh" pupils I've ever had the pleasure to teach to drive. Hope it helps in some small way, and good luck to you both. Lots of love and bestestestest wishes.
