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.
My beautiful mum was diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer last December.
Since then she went through 2 full rounds of chemotherapy but unfortunately not much happened. Now her doctor has prescribed Opdivo, a new treatment that strengthens the immune system, as the last chance. She wants to see whether this new treatment would work on mum.
Unfortunately this new medicine is not covered by any insurance in Iran and the cost is about £4,000 per month ( 2 injections per month, £2,000 each). We have managed to pay for the first treatment but it is just so difficult for dad and us to continue paying so much money in such short time.
Mum has been such an angel throughout her life (mum was a primary school teacher), very courage, kind hearted, energetic (as you see her smile in this difficult time and after a gruesome chemo session) and ready to help anyone. We don't want her to lose this life opportunity because of money, therefore I am reaching out to you and the world for help.
I would be most grateful if you could help us help mum get this treatment and take away the pain.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you so much for your help and kindness.
P.S. I am sorry I have not included any picture as I would like to keep mum's privacy.
