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.
My life changed for ever back in September 2011 when i noticed i began bumping in to things and became very fatigued and forgetful. After a routine visit to my GP, i was referred to an ear, nose & throat specialist, who felt there was nothing initially wrong with me but suggested i have a MRI scan. It turned out that after an MRI scan two small lesions were discovered on my brain..
6 years later and four top consultants i was finally diagnosed with progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis - MS. Its been acknowledged that my form of MS is very aggressive and is the least common form of the disease. In the last 3 years i have lost my home, my driving license, my job, my mobility, my eyesight for which i am now registered partially sighted. I also suffer daily from seizures, complete loss of eyesight from day to day, the ability to move my arms & legs and so much more. I now rely on home care four times a day and suffer from major depression. I will continue to fight this terrible disease as i have 3 wonderful children and one very special amazing wife.
The medical profession have said there is nothing more they can do to help stem or slow down the progression in the UK however, i have discovered alternative therapy in Mexico whereby they offer private stem-cell therapy which has been proven to help others with similar conditions to me. In July this year things got even worse when i was diagnosed with multiple pulmonary embolisms caused through poor circulation and a damaged brain stem. Life can be very cruel as i have also lost my parents this year and Im determined my kids are not going to lose their dad. I have nothing to lose in the long term should this treatment not work for me but this is now my only real option to continue my life with this disease.
I would welcome anyones generosity to help me pursue this goal to bring some form of comfort to me and my family.l
