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.
As those closest to me will know, I was diagnosed with AOA2 in March 2015 at the age of 25. It is a rare neurological condition that affects just 1 in 10,000 people. It affects every sufferer differently but in my case it affects my mobility to the point I use a wheelchair all the time, my balance and coordination is non existent, I suffer from neuropathy or nerve pain and I suffer an eye condition called Nystagmus. I can no longer write and I can no longer do the things i live such as swimming and riding a bike.
There is no cure for this condition but I'm hoping that one day no-one will have to live with this condition.
