    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.


    Theresa May has refused to intervene in the case of Albert Thompson, the London cancer patient asked to pay £54,000 for treatment despite having lived in the UK for 44 years, as it emerged that there could be tens of thousands of people in a similarly uncertain immigration position.

    Thompson, 63, is not receiving the radiotherapy treatment he needs for prostate cancer because he has been unable to provide officials with sufficient documentary evidence showing that he has lived in the UK continuously since arriving from Jamaica as a teenager in 1973. He is unable to pay the £54,000 fee.

    Albert Thompson explains his predicament.

    The Guardian reports Theresa May's promise to look into Albert's case.

        I raised this with some of my friends. I know Albert does not have to pay for his treatment but hope the money will go towards helping through the difficult and harrowing position he was placed in.

        Ashamed to read of this cruel, unjust and outrageous experience this man has been forced to endure, as if cancer isn't enough for someone to experience for god sake. You must live and be valued.
