Weʼre raising £300,000 to Help afford life saving treatment for my daughter Poppy

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.


My beautiful daughter Poppy Martin is 2 1/2 years old, Poppy has neurofibromatosis type 1, this has caused a tumour to grow behind her left eye.

Poppy was first diagnosed early July 2016 when she was just 16 months old.

Our lives will never be the same again.

I am searching for help to find the right Doctors who can take this awful, life threatening nightmare away from us.

Poppy has so far faced 72 rounds of chemotherapy, but sadly the tumour continues to grow. We have been told the tumour is inoperable in the UK.

The tumour has already taken most of the sight in Poppy's left eye and is now growing towards the right eye and is sitting on other parts of the brain (Poppy's right temporal lobe and chiasm to be precise)

Sadly we no longer have time on our side before the tumour does yet more irreversible damage - so we need to act fast.

We are desperately seeking help from doctors outside of the UK who have more advanced treatments and are more specialised in this field.

After multiple set backs we have been told poppy is in fact eligible for proton beam therapy.

We are hopeful on the knowledge that optic pathway gliomas are quite comonly treated using proton beam were available.

We're aiming to reach a target of £300,000 to cover costs of travel, accommodation, consultations and treatment to help change Poppy's life and future significantly!

Any donations will be so gratefully appreciated.

Please help my little princess live a life free from this evil disease,


Ellena Martin (Poppys mummy)
