    Story

    Hi, everyone.

    We are trying to raise funds for Craig Fozzard and his family after a heart-breaking couple of years.

    The first blow to Craig and Leanne--Craig's girlfriend of four years-- came when their daughter, Isla, was born with severe brain-damage. Isla has also been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Since Isla was born, Craig and Leanne --now Isla's full time carer --have had to fight tooth and nail to get any help for Isla's conditions.

    More bad luck hit the family when a few months after Isla's diagnosis, Craig was diagnosed with incurable, Stage 4 lung cancer. A short while after the diagnosis Craig was taken to hospital with pneumonia and potentially lethal bloobclots on his lungs. While in hospital, a second scan revealed the malicious cancer had spread to his bones.

    In the time Craig has left, he would like to make as many long-lasting memories with Isla and Leanne as possible. A few day trips to the coast and a visit to the zoo -- Isla is obsessed with animals -- would mean the world to them. Unfortunately, Craig and Isla's illnesses have put a huge strain on the families finances, and, as a result, have left no money left to treat Isla to the trips out every child deserves.

    Craig, Leanne, and Isla would be very grateful for any donations, no matter how large or small, to help create some treasured memories that will last them -- especially Isla -- a lifetime.

    Thanks for your support.

      No parent saves money for their son's funeral. In Craig's short 4 month battle with Cancer, his family and partner have now the sorrow of laying Craig to rest. Craig's funeral is being held on the 27th October. Any past and future donations will be greatly appreciated to help towards giving Craig a beautiful send. Thank you all dearly for your support.

    I have been a friend of Craig's for 22years now. Craig has always been there in a heartbeat to help his friends and family out, and wanted nothing in return. He is the most caring and lovely guy. Now its time to help him xx
