Weʼre raising £6,000 to Fund liopedema tissue removal not available on the NHS which is causing pain
- London, UK
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'm trying to raise funds to ease the pain and humility associated with Lipoedema . Not being able to wear clothes without pain. Move without pain. Look in the mirror without emotional pain. This condition affects every aspect of life. Being too wide for chairs. Not being able to take my children for walks. The pain of being touched even if it's just a hug. There is no medical cure. There is however a permanent solution of specialised laser liposuction. This , like other essential medical treatments , is not eligible for NHS funding. Please, please, please help me. I am a widower of 2 young children. I used to play football, ride bikes, climb mountains. Now I can do nothing!

I have been suffering from Lipoedema for over a decade. The condition is ever worsening. The nhs will not fund the only, and permanent treatment of laser liposuction. Please help?
