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.
Myself and Leigh are doing a skydive for his birthday on 26th May. I then heard about olivers story and thought it was a perfect opportunity to raise some funds towards his treatment. We are doing the highest skydive in the UK, it is usually 11,000ft but the one we will be doing is 15,000ft. Please, please donate if you can and please read olivers story......
This is olivers story, which I have copied from his funding page.

HELP! Our son Oliver has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma on his 3rd birthday. He has now started his chemotherapy treatment and we hope these are the first steps towards him being cancer free. Unfortunately, as Oliver was diagnosed 2 weeks after trials finished, we have been told that Immunology, which is a beneficial Neuroblastoma treatment, is currently unavailable on the NHS.
Research suggests that it will give Oliver a better chance of the cancer not returning if he was able to access this after his initial treatment has been completed. It is difficult to put an estimate on the amount needed as it depends on the trials that are available at the time and recommendations by our consultant. Previous treatment has been at a cost of approx £200,000 and so we are asking for help in raising this money over the next 9 months so it is ready when his initial treatment is complete. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This could be donations, organising fundraising activities or sharing this with your friends and family.
Please note that if Oliver cannot use this money for whatever reason we will donate all the money to a charity so another child will benefit from this potentially life saving treatment
