Weʼve raised £0 to Help my 46-year-old cousin to access a second opinion on her stage-4 stomach cancer, for which she is currently being denied treatment.

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.
Rafaela is my cousin. She is 46 years old and lives in the South of Spain surrounded by her close family: her loving husband, her three children and two grandchildren.
Last August, after having both her ovaries removed, they all heard the devastating news: she has stage 4 stomach signet cell stomach cancer. To make it worse, her current doctors are refusing to treat it because it is "inactive" and she is constantly being told to accept her "fate".
She is getting help from a local Cancer Association to send all her medical history to a well-known private hospital in Pamplona (North of Spain) to get a second opinion. Her concern is, however, that she will not be able to afford treatment, or even travelling costs to the hospital (475 miles), as she would have to pay for that herself.
I would be forever grateful if you could contribute (as little or as much as you can) to help Rafaela get a second chance; allow her grandchildren (4 and 6) to continue to enjoy the company of their caring grandmother
