    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.


    Daisy is my adorable six year old toy poodle, my constant shadow and companion bringing me great comfort when times are hard. Daisy likes nothing more than having her tummy rubbed, chasing birds in the fields and being tucked up in bed at at the end of the night ... head on the pillow and quilt over her.

    Dairy became rather poorly the beginning of September with gastroenteritis and pancreatitis and despite intensive treatment and referral to a specialist vet Daisy has become increasingly unwell. Daisy now requires a brain sca as she is showing signs of neurological issues and she also requires an urgent endoscopy as she is vomiting blood.

    I have always ensured that I have adequate insurance cover for Daisy so that if she is ill then I knew she could receive the care and treatment necessary. Despite this, much to my dismay I have found that although Daisy is covered for up to £5000 per month, within the small print there are limitations resulting in me being liable to cover at least £1000 of the costs to date. In addition to this the £5000 limit has been reached reached and is not renewed until 9th October .... the deterioration in Daisy means that she cannot wait that long but at £3000 for the specialistation to carry out the necessary tests, it is beyond my means as I am a carer for my autistic son

    The worry is overwhelming, I cannot leave Daisy to suffer but cant bear to think of the alternative.

    I am usually the person volunteering to jump out of planes, rattle tins and organise events to raise funds for charites, so I find having to ask strangers to help myself and my dog really rather difficult. However, anything you can do to help will ensure Daisy can receive treatment to get her on on the the road to recovery.

      Daisy now needs an mri scan of her brain as her pupils are different sizes and she hascdeveloped some odd mannerisms. She also needs an endoscopy to look at her intestines as she is struggling to eat and drink and still not recovering.
