    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Four year old Mason is from Netherfield, Nottingham. He was diagnosed in August 2016 with a form of cancer called Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma. Only one other person in the UK has had this.

    Desperate to save Mason, his family had to fly him out to the US as there was nothing more the Doctors in the UK could do for him.

    Mason is currently in America awaiting the operation.

    Mason's parents have sold everything they have to raise money for the cost of the treatment, however this is still not enough. We're asking for your help to help raise £10,000. Your donation will help contribute towards the operation and treatment Mason needs, his and his parent's accommodation, transport to and from the hospital, food and flights for him and his family so that Mason can come back home once the treatment is complete.

    Please help us in helping this wonderful family and Mason.

    We have different events happening in order to the raise the money:

    - a sponsored 3 day fast
    - golf event at Raffles @ Ramsdale Golf Club on Sunday 19th March from 10am to 3pm
    - auction of signed football boots and shirt from Nottingham Forest at Raffles - Ramsdale Golf Club on Sunday 19 March at 10am
    - auction for signed football boots and shirt from a former Premiership Footballer from Newcastle United at Raffles - Ramsdale Golf Club on Sunday 19 March at 10am

    We will also be creating a Facebook Page which will have different events and fundraising days for Mason.
