£2,830raised of £3,000 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £3,000 to help buy food replacement drinks for my friend with esophageal cancer that he cannot afford.

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

Nikolay is a proud Bulgarian national who has worked hard all his life, he lives in Burgas, in September 2017 everything changed, he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and after his initial operation cannot eat or drink normally. Everything has to go directly into his stomach so this requires food replacement drinks to be used for all his nutrition.

He needs 8 bottles of food replacement a day and each bottle costs around £2.30, that works out at around £560 per month. This is not covered by health insurance, Bulgaria's average monthly wage is £460 per month so it's a huge amount of money to have to try and find. Nikolay cannot currently work and has so far sold his car and his TV and is relying on people giving him money directly.

The next steps for Nik are that he has two more chemo sessions and radiotherapy, once that is complete and successful, he will be eligible for the reconstruction operation, all in all about another 6 months before the clinicians can consider the next operation. To get to that point he needs to eat and survive on the food replacement drinks which are expensive. That's the reason for the £3,000 ask, 6 months at about £500 / month.

Anything you can do to help will be appreciated however small, all monies will go directly to Nik.

Thank you.

    I am honestly stuck for words, I am literally dumbstruck by everyone's generosity. All of your donations will make a massive difference to Nik and will provide him with some more security and reduced stress in the next few months when he needs to be at his strongest. My heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you. It is very, very much appreciated.

    Again, thank you all so much, it's very much appreciated. Here is an article from earlier this year about Nik. There should be a translate option available for those that can't read Bulgarian - that includes me. https://m.flagman.bg/article/154954
