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.


I’m lucky, I have a great life, two healthy sons, a loving boyfriend, two sisters/best friends, nieces and nephews and the best parents a girl could wish for who have been together for nearly 50 years, a nice home, a good job and a great social life. Now why am I starting with this when I’m asking for your support, I’m not showing off I am just saying that I know how fortunate I am and I also know that this could easily change, but also know that not everyone is as lucky.

Having a Mum that has survived breast cancer twice kind of opens your eyes to this bloody awful, evil disease, a disease that affects everyone in one way or another every single day and I have read all too many stories about those affected, it shows no mercy, affecting adults and children alike and it’s the stories about children that affect me the most, as a mother I don’t know how these parents find the strength to cope.

So instead of reading the stories, with tears in my eyes and wondering what I can do to help, I am actually going to DO something, to try and make a difference, no matter how small.

I want to raise some money, and hopefully awareness and have decided to take ‘dry January’ 12 steps further (as it were) and do ‘Dry 2018’. For anyone that knows me this will be a challenge but what is the point of doing it if it isn't? And where is the fun in that for my sponsors? So I am asking for you to sponsor me, for however little (or large!) you can, I will give you updates on my progress and we can hopefully have some fun throughout the year with my struggles (or not!) - if I do have struggles I know that they will be nothing compared to the struggle of being a parent wanting one last cuddle and being unable to do so, or watching my child being pumped full of poison in order to get better, having spent quite a lot of my childhood in hospital I know how trying and damaging to family life these times can be so whatever we together can do to help I hope it will help someone, somewhere.
