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.
We are raising funds to give our mum the best send off she deserves.
Our mum was the most caring lady, who would help anybody.
She worked incredibly hard throughout her life to provide for me and my sister.
About 10 years ago she retired,she was diagnosed having rheumatoid arthritis which affected her hands and legs.
As the years went on she devolped diabeties and in 2016 we was told she had vascular demetia and altzheimers, this was heartbreaking news for us and her family.
In january 2018 mum reported she was having eyesight trouble, her vision was coming and going.
I went up to my mums that afternoon and rang her doctors and they said she is having a stroke, i rang 999 immediately.
Mum was admitted to hospital and came home a week later, we was told she had a major stroke and it left her partially sighted.
We then provided round the clock care for the last 6 months.
Sadly she kept on detoirating and she passed away peacefully aged 71 years on the 11 th june 2018.
