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.
I have started this page to try and raise enough money to send my sister to get dental implants.
Four years ago my sister had a spinal operation, which went wrong and left her with nerve damage which effects the nerves from the L4/L5 lumber disc area on her spine, the pain she suffers (chronic neuropathic pain syndrome) effects the full length of her left leg, she has foot drop, she also has been left with bladder and bowel issues.
We then found out that this surgery would not have been preformed by any other surgeon as she didn't have a ruptured disc which is why she was offered the surgery to start with.
The pain she now has is with her 24 hours per day and never goes away on a pain scale of 10 she battles daily with 8 out of 10 score. Yet she keeps battling on and trying her best. After the surgery she spent two years in bed crying unable to cope with what had happened and on high doses of morphine and pregabalin which she still takes to take the edge off the pain, however this medication has caused other issues one being her teeth problems.
She has had 7 upper teeth snap off for no reason her dentist can explain, she has to wear a plate (false teeth) to replace the missing teeth and this up sets her greatly, she thinks everyone can tell, she can't eat properly, her moth hurts.
From what the hospital called a simple operation my sister has had her life turned upside down, so want to try and make her feel like her old self and I can only do this with help from amazing people who maybe able to donate, if she's not worrying about her teeth maybe she can start claiming back the life she has lost to the chronic pain condition she has suffered, there is also a nerve block injection she would like to try however the pain clinic refuse to do it even though they can offer it and she been told she would have to go private so my aim is to raise enough money for the dental implants and so she can try the nerve block injection... She deserves this so much
