    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 charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We have already raised £10,000 on another page which is now closed, so if you've donated and don't see it here, thats why! Thank you!

    In 2008 Mark Mather was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, since his initial diagnosis, I think its fair to say that the MS has progressed to the point where now Mark struggles to get about and do things that people take for granted.

    A new treatment is currently being trialled in Uk and is available in other countries called HSCT.

    We have been looking into the treatment with our own NHS however sadly Mark doesn't meet the criteria currently for the treatment. SO after a great deal of research we have found a place in Mexico who do the treatment - here is a link for info

    http://hsctmexico.com/contenido/HSCT.html

    The treatment will involve Mark going to Mexico for 28 days and having chemotherapy and stem cell harvesting and replanting, in the hope that it will reboot his immune system and give him some quality of life.
    If we don't do this, based on Marks current prognosis this could mean that mark will potentially end up with a high level of disability and be unable to actively live his life to his full potential.
    Our boys Oliver and Lucian who are 8 and 5 want their Daddy to be able to walk with them, play with them and do all the things a regular Daddy can do, Marks and I want this too.
    There is no cure for MS, this is the next best thing. I know that those of you who know Mark, know what a fantastic man he is, he would do anything for anyone, he is a genuine, friendly, caring and loving Friend, Father, Son and Partner. He just wants a chance to live his life the way he thought he would.
    We are so very lucky to have fantastic friends and family and feel positive that the collective goodwill and love of us all can make this happen!
    He is currently on a wait list of 8 months but once we have funds we can be added to a cancellation list.
    A heart felt thank you for all you do and will do to support us - it means so much.
    Kirstie, Mark, Oliver and Lucian xxx
