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.
I wish I had a magic lamp with even just one wish! It would be to cure Natasha. You always hear of these terrible stories of it happening to other people but this time it's my best friend, my parner in crime, my sister I never had.
Natasha was diagnosed with a lung disease at 35 and at first we didn't know it was terminal. Surely the doctors can help with medication and she would be well again. Unfortunately none of the drugs stopped the disease from getting worse and her lungs started to deteriorate quickly, even after several rounds of chemo it added no stability.
The biggest blow was when Natasha got rejected off the lung transplant list due to the fact that the lung disease is just one of her illnesses and her case was deemed too complicated and rejected. Tash was then referred to hospice, where these fantastic people helped make it all a little easier to swallow.
Natasha has had to wear an oxygen pack for sometime and now needs a wheelchair most of the time but has to rely on people to push her around. The motorised wheelchair will change Natasha's life, she will be able to get out of the house for some fresh air or take her little dog for a walk (something she's not been able to do for sometime) or even just pop to the shop.
