    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hey all. I'm raising funds to get my sister further life saving treatment in Germany. My sister has been Battling stage 4 Brain Cancer for the last year, she has been through a horrendous time. She lost her home, job, car and not to mention her whole independence too. My sister had been receiving treating from the Beatson but it stopped working and got devasting news that no more could be done for her. I've looked into treatment at the Hallwang Private Oncology Clinic in Germany but it's a lot of money for this treatment. I need all the help to raise these funds for my sister and nephew. We aren't ready to stop fighting this horrible disease and I'll do all I can to keep my nephew with his mum. Please, please donate anything you can to help me do this.

    My sister Leighanne was one of the most healthiest people I know. She always ate well, worked out and was a boy's football coach. Leighanne never took unwell very often but became unwell so quickly. She was getting headaches, passing out, losing weight and not eating too. My sister wasn't one for going to the doctor's or taking medication but after 2 months of this happening to her, she had to go. My sister had seen the doctor's, visited local Hospital and also had doctor's out to the house too. After this happening so many times every doctor she seen had told her something different. It was viral, it will pass, it was viral meningitis and she was at the tail end of it. It was sinusitis, it will pass. It was tinnitus, it will pass. Not once was my sister tested to say it was any of these illnesses, saying she was at it and wanted a day off work. When all this was happening my sister was at home with her 13 year old son Kieran and he had to witness all of this. She couldn't walk on her own, her balance was gone and her appetite too. My sister went mis-diagnosed for over 2 months before someone actually listened to us. Our worst fears were untold from there and a year of hell began.
    Love Leighanne's sister
