    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Being told you have cancer is like someone exploding a bomb in your life. It will never be the same again.

    That's what happened to me this year. "I think it's very likely cancer" my gynaecologist told me - and it was. I woke up from surgery to have the news confirmed. Because it had spread into a couple of lymph nodes, I've needed chemo. I've now completed chemo and am doing ok, but I need your help.

    A a freelancer (and not that well-paid), I don't have savings to tide me over. Nor do I qualify for state help. I have no partner or parents to help pay the bills. But I still have rent to pay and all the other costs. That's where you can really make a difference. If I can raise my target it will mean that I won't have to worry about paying rent. I'm pushing myself to work when I can but I really should be resting more.

    Whatever you can spare will really make a difference. Nothing is too small, it all adds up. Please help. I've been dealt a rotten hand but I'm trying to handle it with as much grace and courage as I can find. Cancer will not bring me down. Help me fight it.

      £3000 isn't a lot to some people, but it will make a huge difference to me. It will be around 6 months rent. If I could raise even more, that will help pay other living costs as well. Your help is both needed and valued, so please donate whatever you can spare.

      I expected this last chemo to hit the hardest, and the effects have certainly lasted ,longer. Rest and recuperation is needed. The recovery doesn't end with the chemo. This has taken a lot out of me physically and emotionally, and I am perhaps only realising now just how much. I work when I can, but sometimes I do some writing even though chemo brain doesn't really want to. The closer I get to my goal, the more I will be able to listen to my body and brain) and turn down work when I really should be resting.

      Chemo is over! Had my last session 2 days ago. Nice end to the year after the stress of the last 6 months. Now a year of medication and a few months' recovery. So your help is still important, as I won't be able to do more than minimal work for a while yet. And a huge thanks to everyone who's donated, shared, and promoted my fund. You have helped make things a little easier and made me feel better that there are people who care. Every donation has meaning, whether it's £10 or £100.
