    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Helen was 43 when diagnosed, out of the blue, with terminal brain cancer in summer 2016 when Daisy was 15 and Isabel was 13. When the last treatments and trials failed in May 2018, H was told to expect to live about 3 months. She lived for 30, as the heart and soul.

    And Isabel has made a video:

    So many people helped Helen and we - that's Daisy, Isabel and Nick - would like to give something back, in Helen's memory. Whatever we raise will be shared equally between Maggie's, the wonderful charity where Helen worked in her final job; Brain Tumour Research; and the hospice where H spent the last year of her life.

    If you are able to give a couple of quid, that's brilliant. Please ignore the default donation amount button and enter a lower amount! And if you're not able, that's totally cool. But do go out of your way to tell someone you love them. That can also change a life, or just make someone's day.

    Daisy, Isabel and Nick. And H.

    PS: (added on Christmas Day): We started out yesterday morning hoping to raise £1,500 but did that by the first afternoon, so changed it to £2,500 and achieved by the evening. So it's gone up again. Our real target is 'as much as possible, to make as much difference as possible'. THANK YOU!

      We have been blown away by the astonishing outpouring of love for Helen and by your amazing generosity. Thank you SO MUCH. Each time we set a target, it's been met. Our real target is to raise as *much* as possible over the next weeks. All charities have had massive problems in the pandemic. If, in Helen's memory, we can help redress the balance and push some funding their way, then brilliant. In the meantime Isabel has made a video about her mum. It's emotional https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWuudrw-ghc
