    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.


    I am very, very lucky as I near 5 years of living with lung cancer. The team who look after me are amazing and their ward could really use the funds to improve what they can offer. Please read my poem and consider donating to a very worthy cause.

    Five Alive

    It’s nearly five and I’m still alive
    Those years have seen much change
    Been on treatment then off
    It’s sometimes very strange

    Don’t know what my future holds
    Do know I cherish each and every day
    Surrounded by your love and support
    I will surely find a way

    Every three weeks since November
    I have been to sit in the chair
    Take my meds, and cannula from a member
    Of the lovely team, there to care

    So as this macabre anniversary reaches me
    I would lik
    e to mark it well, make it less scary
    A donation from those who care
    For the chemo ward called Leri

    If you can make it five for five, penny or pound
    Then my grateful thanks are forever yours
    If I can reach thousand round
    I can donate to the worthiest cause

    Hoping you can help me say thank you
    To Doc Elin, Rhian, Helwen, Bea, and Nia
    The loveliest, kindest, caring crew
    Whose help has kept me here

    Make a difference, donate and celebrate.
