    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Rachel has come home from Alder Hey Childrens Hospital, with less than 2 weeks to live. Her family want to spend the time until Rachel goes with her. Rachel has been diagnosed with cancer, and has been bravely fighting it for many months, but unfortunately the cancer has proved too much. Rachel is now at home with the support of Macmillan.

      Update from the Page owner

      THANK YOU!!!!! Rachel's Mum and Dad have asked me to say a very big thank you to everyone who has contributed to the fund. You have made a very big impact on the family allowing them to spend the final weeks together. Rachel stayed at home the whole time and passed away peacefully in her bed. Some of the money covered the costs of the family staying home for the last 4 weeks, and staying home to plan and recover from the funeral. Some of the money will be spent on funeral costs and travel costs for distant relatives to fly in for the funeral, which will be this week, as well as costs for the wake. The family are planning on moving to a new house to make a new start, so some of the money raised will help with this new chapter in their lives. I am sure you will join me in sending our love to the family at this difficult time. Thank you all once again for being so generous. Lets remember Rachel as she was, so I have attached a picture from happier times. Goodbye beautiful Rachel.

      This story was just heartbreaking and makes you ask why on so many levels. What a gorgeous little soul...such a rotten disease. Our thoughts are with her beautiful family.
