Weʼve raised £7,209 to make life better for the kids in the Leeds Teenage Childrens Cancer Ward and help the Willberry Cancer Charity
- Funded on Wednesday, 13th November 2019
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.
In September 2017 Tabitha Wood was 13 and was diagnosed with a rare form of Ovarian cancer. It was classed as grade three and the staff at Leeds General Infirmary performed extensive and life saving surgery within a week. After a difficult time she is now checked with MRI, blood tests and X rays every two months but is back at school and wants to give back to the people that saved her life.
Tabby wants to raise funds so each of the beds in the Teenage Cancer ward at LGI can have an iPad, so the children can have access to stream films, take and share photos and just make life a little easier.
Additional money will go to help families stay near their children in Leeds whilst they are in hospital and also to the Hannahs Willberry Wonder Pony Cancer Charity, that helps children and their families with cancer, and were very good raising Tabby's spirits whilst she was ill.
Tabby and her brother Ben, and Dad Adrian are going to cycle from Charing Cross Hospital in London (where her specialist Prof Seckl is based) to Leeds General Infirmary in Yorkshire, (who treat her) about 250 miles. They are not regular cyclists but are willing to do what it takes to makes a difference and give back to those who need it.
Can you help? Every little will make a difference!
