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

I am a 48 year old who loves life and who was diagnosed 15 months ago with stage 4 bowel cancer. Unfortunately it has spread to my liver so right now surgery isnt an option. However, along with chemotherapy to try and shrink the tumours I have been offered a newer treatment called monoclonal antibodies which target the tumour cells and turn off the growth factor to help them shrink. In addition this medication also increases the efficacy of the chemotherapy. Hopefully my tumours will shrink to allow for future surgery or at the very least allow for a good quality of life for as long as possible.

This drug is currently the gold standard treatment recommended by NICE. Sadly due to NHS funding rules I was only allowed a certain number of cycles for free, meaning that in order to continue I must fund this treatment myself which will cost £3,500 per month. I have set up this page as part of an effort to raise enough money to allow me to have this treatment for as long as possible.

I am currently fit and well and hope to remain this way for as long as possible. I appreciate this is a big ask from everyone so any donations no matter how small would be amazing and greatly appreciate

Thankyou!!!
