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.
We are doing a sponsored walk which is 3KM aroubd the local park, dogs included as Grace loves dogs.
Please take 5 minutes to read Grace's story and make a donation as big or as small as you can.
Hi, my name is Grace Carson, I am 14 years old. I live in Lanchester, County Durham and suffer from a major Spinal deformity called Scoliosis. This means that my spine is bent so i'm in pain a lot of the time and feel that I look different to my friends - I'm so much smaller than they are. I have a beautiful little puppy called Alfie and I love him to bits but sometimes even walking him hurts me too much.
I need to have an operation in Germany by November this year to straighten my spine. My case is really unusual due to where the curve is on my spine so it is not a simple operation - this is why I need to go abroad to have it done. If I do not have it by November, the doctors will not be able to help me in the way I need them to as I will no longer meet the criteria for the surgery at all. My Family are doing all they can to raise the money but I need help as we have to raise £35,000!
