raised of £3,000 target by 166 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,368 to help Tree pay her bills during her cancer treatment.

    Funded on Saturday, 17th September 2016

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The following Facebook post from Tree Vaughan-Hannaway prompted me to set up this page, with Tree's permission;

    "The best thing about the NHS is having the best treatment available with no financial implications. Unfortunately the start of my treatment was 6 months ago and our lovely NHS (who is my employer) only gives me full pay till now. I am booked in for further surgery (yes the shite has spread) at the end of the month. The best treatment is to crack my chest and remove it all. This will have a recovery time of 8 to 12 weeks leaving me basically broke! My only option is to have the lesser effective treatment with a quicker recovery time (laproscopically) and hope it doesn't spread further when I can afford more sick time next year to get it done properly. Unless anyone has a better suggestion other than a payday loan to cover my halved waged for a few months."

    This was my suggestion, to ask all of Tree's friends and family, their friends and family and so on to help raise some money to help Tree get through the next few months while she battles cancer. Nobody should have to put their health second. Tree should be able to have the most effective treatment now, not next year!

    Please help to get Tree's chest cracked open in style! We've worked out that if we raise £3,000, this will cover what she needs. Anything extra of course would be more than welcome. So please, dig deep, any amount from you would help, even if it's just a pound!

      Tree's surgery has gone well, it's now all about the recovery. Something that she can now do with one less worry on her mind thanks to each and every one of you that has donated.

      Today is chest cracking day for Tree! Without each and everyone of you showing your support, donating and spreading Tree's story, she wouldn't be having this done today. She would've have put it off for another year so she could return to work and earn enough money to continue paying the bills. But thanks to the amazing response to this crowdfunding, Tree can relax a little and concentrate on getting better. Thank you.

      I honestly can't thank you all enough for making this happen, yes I set it up and took charge of coordinating stuff and became Tree's unnofficial manager but we wouldn't have reached the target and beyond without everybody chipping in, donating and spreading the word!
