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.
23rd September 2018 I will be running the Folkestone half Marathon to raise much needed funds for Poppy's plea.
Poppy Martin is 2 1/2 years old and lives with her family in Whitstable. Poppy has neurofibromatosis type 1, this has caused a tumour to grow behind her left eye. Poppy was first diagnosed early July 2016 when she was just 16 months old.
Poppy's family are searching for help to find the right Doctors who can take this awful, life threatening nightmare away from them all. Poppy has so far faced 72 rounds of chemotherapy, but sadly the tumour continues to grow and have been told the tumour is inoperable in the UK. The tumour has already taken most of the sight in Poppy's left eye and is now growing towards the right eye and is sitting on other parts of the brain (Poppy's right temporal lobe and chiasm to be precise)
Poppy's family are aiming to reach a target of £300,000 to cover costs of travel, accommodation, consultations and treatment to help change Poppy's life and future significantly! Any donations will be so gratefully appreciated.
