    Weʼve raised £1,508 to Make Christmas Magical for Princess Kyra Leigh Diffey

    Swanage, Dorset, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 26th December 2016

    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.


    Cancer is a disease no-one should have to suffer, let alone a child.

    This page is for a little princess, Kyra Leigh Diffey who will be 18 months old in December.

    Kyra had just turned 11 months old, when she was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Stage 4.

    This is an aggressive form of cancer, so this little one has suffered some unbearable treatment, and still has 16 months left to go of extensive treatment, and through it all she still can give us all a beautiful smile.

    As I write this page, Kyra is having a blood transfusion, she has been in hospital since March this year, with the last 3 months being spent in the Piam Brown oncology and haematology centre in Southampton Hospital. During the last 8 months, Kyra has almost not made it 3 times and has been in ICU twice.

    The reason for this page is too raise some funds to give Kyra a magical Christmas, she will almost certainly not be home for Christmas, so we want to bring Christmas to her. We want her to experience the magic of Christmas from her hospital bed.

    We also would like to have some funds to give to Kyra's mommy. 24 year old Jai, for when that day comes that Kyra can go home so that mommy can take her out to places such as Pepa Pig World or LEGOLAND, so that beautiful memories can be made.

    Lets also not forget mommy - a single mommy - who has given up everything, her job, her car, who also has spent the last 8 months at Kyra's side in hospital, living on the ward having to fund her own food and transport costs.

    We don't know what the future holds for this little one, that's why we would love to make this Christmas a magical experience for her and her family.

    I hope and pray that one day, I will be able to tell Kyra, how people got together that strangers helped us to bring some magic and good positive thoughts to her in her and her families time of need.

    Thank you for reading about my cause please do help us by sharing this page far and wide. God bless.
