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

In January this year my little cousin Rebecca McKenna (aged 3) was diagnosed with a rare child cancer called Neuroblastoma.

Neuroblastoma is a rare and very aggressive disease that affects around 100 children each year in the UK, making it the cancer with the highest mortality rate amongst all child cancers.

Rebecca’s primary tumours were in her stomach and her adrenal glands, but has since spread to her bone marrow.

With that said, she has recently finished 90 days of chemotherapy, and is about to enter another phase of high dose chemo, a stem cell transplant, and finally 3 weeks of radiotherapy. The chance of relapse after all of this is still as high as 80% after 2 years.

Her parents set out to better her chances of survival and found that a preventative drug available only in America called DFMO was their best opportunity. Unfortunately it is extremely expensive and we are well off our fundraising target at this time.

In a bid to help towards reaching their goal, Lucy, Anna and I will be doing a sprint distance triathlon on 18th August. The race will be held in Highland Perthshire and will involve a 750m swim in Loch Tay, a 20km cycle round the quiet Perthshire roads, and finally a 5km run in the grounds of Taymouth castle.

This isn’t the first time you or someone you know has/will be affected by a form of cancer so please do give what you can and share the below page amongst friends and family.

Thank you x
