£710raised of £5,000 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £710 to help fund Muriel’s treatment. Muriel has cancer that is disfiguring her face and requires urgent treatment in order to halt its growth

    Funded on Friday, 15th September 2017

    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.


    Mum has just been diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Lymphoma. Treatment through necessity has commenced. In two short months the cancer has eaten away around a third of her face.
    The money will be used to help pay for the treatment and her ongoing care costs.
    Family and friends are already assisting with everything they can, but the costs are mounting beyond our means and that covered by her medical insurance.
    Treatment will hopefully stop the rapid growth.
    Halting the spread will at least allow her body to repair the damage, and afford Mum a degree of dignity which, in the twilight of her years this retired nurse – a veteran of the Second World War – is being robbed of by this awful disease.

      Schedule 20 treatments to the original lesion have completed, with four to go on the secondary site, with no further sites so far being found. Thereafter it will be a waiting game. In the meantime the improvement of the visible disfigurement continues to improve such that there is only a very small area that is not new skin which, if things continue as they have, will slough off soon. I never imagined such a result could be possible. I can only repeat our gratitude for your generous help, including those who made direct contributions. xoxox

      Thanks to the forbearance of Medics attending to Muriel, treatment continues with them accepting that payment will be forthcoming in time. Half way through on the first lesion and the improvement continues to the extent that by far the majority of the area is now new skin rather than the horrendous unsightly lesion it was. I never expected such dramatic improvement in so short a period. Having had her weekly consultation with the Oncologist, the 2nd site also reduced, and on full examination no further sites located. Many thanks to you all

      Muriel has had 12 radiation treatments on the original lesion, and 6 to a growth discovered at the commencement of treatment. There is measurable improvement at both sites, the visible one being obvious even to the untrained eye. I am told Muriel is typically upbeat, optimistic and positive. I think in her own way she is enjoying getting out for change :-) and I am told she is more sprightly what with having all the exercise she is getting going to and from. She wants all you kind people to know how much she appreciates you help and kindness.

    Muriel is my mother. I am her third son and, along with my late younger brother, was born on her birthday.
