    Weʼve raised £350 to Raise funds for Lewis's cave

    Funded on Thursday, 4th May 2017

    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.


    Lewis Weinman was a happy healthy 7 year old boy but on 4th November 2016 he was diagnosed with Medullblastomas - brain and spinal tumours.

    We are raising funds for a building to be converted for a safe space for Lewis to enjoy with his friends and family during his treatment and recovery.

      Lewis has finished 6 weeks of radiotherapy :) He has had a scan we will get the results on Friday, we have everything crossed that the treatment so far has had a positive effect on the tumours. Lewis will then have to endure three more intensive sessions of chemotherapy.....Bless him he is a little fighter, already having endured so much.

      Lewis is reaching the end of his radiotherapy, it has been a long road for him, he will have a few weeks off before starting the next invasive treatments (chemotherapy) His Lewis cave is coming along really well, thanks to the generosity of everyone, we can't thank you all enough. We are continuing to raise funds to kit out the inside of the 'cave' so any donation would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks xx

      Lewis is half way through his radiotherapy, his bloods keep dropping really low so has to endure platelet and blood transfusions. He will then have a scan to determine how the next three sessions of chemotherapy will be administered. Little Lewis still has a long way to go - last night he said to his mum 'I just want the cancer to go away and be normal again'. Our hearts ache for him.... The 'cave' the special place for Lewis to relax and recover in is coming on nicely thanks to the generosity of so many people.

      We are hoping to get Star Wars troopers marching through Coalville to celebrate Palitoy80 at the end of the year. If it happens I would like you to be there Lewis.
