    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

    After showing symptoms in April 2020 and being diagnosed in May 2020 with primary CNS Lymphoma, Paul has completed four cycles of MATRIX chemotherapy and is currently recovering at home from a stem cell transplant.

    Paul now needs intensive physio, accupunture and neuro-rehab to try and give him the best chance of regaining the use of his left arm and reverse the left footdrop. This will enable Paul to get back to the things he loves - Working, being able to drive, playing with Niamh and Arlo and kicking a football again.

    The last six months have taken a huge toll on Paul, mentally, physically and emotionally and we are now at the point where the cancer treatment is complete and we can start to look forward (Once we are no longer shielding) and we are looking for donations to help make this possible again.

    Your donations will go directly to Paul to contribute towards his ongoing recovery.

      So it’s 6 months to the day since Paul had his stem cell transplant. The journey has been horrible but Paul is back to looking well and making progress with the physical side of things. We have two more Essex trips to go until Paul has finished his treatment routine. We continue to focus on physio side of things as it’s a long road. Pauls had some issues with his shoulder but we are hoping with his new wrist splint and a massage that improve.

      Quick update after a really positive and busy week of hospital, OT, acupuncture and physio! - - Doctor is really pleased with Paul’s blood counts and health. - Had a zoom call with the specialist acupuncturist who has seen Paul’s medical records and has agreed a treatment plan once lockdown ends. - Physio, Paul cycled 3.2 miles on the rehab bike and has progressed onto new exercises. Pauls determination and focus to get better are incredible. Still a long way to go but I am so proud of him and his progress. ❤️ Thank you all!!!!! 🥰
