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 49 year old who loves life and who was diagnosed 20 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 £3,618 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!!!

    Hello Everyone, its been a while since my last update. I completed a walking marathon 26 miles last weekend for Macmillan which was amazing. I had my latest scan and everything is playing ball, so am staying on maintenance therapy which doesnt hurt my body quite so much. We are continuing to raise so much money in total now including money going straight into my bank account we are now over £30,000 which is amazing and will allow me to have my treatment for a long time yet. Thanks again everyone you are all amazing xxxx
