Weʼre raising £1,000 to raise funds for 30 year old Lauren’s, Mum of two’s potentially lifesaving cancer treatment
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.
Lauren is currently going theoigh every mothers worst nightmare.
Lauren is 30 years old with two young children, Lucy & Ollie.
She has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour - she has had 60% of this removed by surgery and has had chemo and radiation.
She has been told this week to stop fighting and to create a bucket list with her family and focus on that instead.
Lauren has too much fight left in her and has found an option in Germany to undergo Immunotherapy which we have been fundraising for.
Ahe has since found the same treatment being offered in cambridge which is a lot closer to home, however it comes at a huge expense still
Everyone who knows me knows I'm absolutely terrified of flying / planes / heights (to the extent of counselling, medication and hypnotherapy just to get me on that plane). But that fear is NOTHING to what my friend Lauren is currently going through.
I will be jumping out of a plane at 15,000ft (the highest in the UK) to raise money to contribute towards her treatment on Saturday 18th August.
