    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

    Our son, Tom, was injured in a car accident 2 years ago, broke his neck and was paralysed. Thanks to support from friends and family he has continued with physio and since his injury is termed 'incomplete' there is the hope that we can do something to improve the paralysis. Tom is an amazing boy who has to deal with so much and yet pushes himself and tries so hard to be positive. It's not at all easy for him. He was a young, fit, active boy and now he's not. As his mum not to be able to fix that is very hard.

    We have the opportunity for Tom to go to America and receive treatment through a trial they are running. It involves functional electrical stimulation through the brain and spinal cord whilst using a loco mat to walk Tom's legs.

    Tom has 4 brothers and so has a family team who all want to see him get back as much movement in his body as possible. He has only just turned 21 and as I am sure you can all appreciate we want our boy to be as well as possible. It has been the worst nightmare imaginable and a situation you find yourself ill-equipped to deal with. All we can do is fight to get the best chance of an amazing recovery for him.

    As I said family and friends have, and are being amazing, but if we can get Tom's cause out into a wider audience and raise the money to send him to America that would be fantastic
