Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
As you all know Rachel my mum received the news two years ago that she had breast cancer despite all the doctors efforts of 20 rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments and only being in remission 5 months until we got the worst news possible ever the cancer had Returned!!!!
November 19th 2015 was the day our family will never forget The cancer had spread to her brain. Rachel is not only mine and My siblings mum but our bestfriend who brought us up on her own and did a wonderful job she has done even Until this very day....
Today August 21st we had to do the hardest thing ever and tell the younger children their mummy isn't going to get better but she is going to die. She is leaving behind 5 wonderful children and 3 grandchildren and her sister. Me And my sister Roxanne, the younger siblings who we will be caring for once she passes aged only 10/11 and 15 not a age to lose your mummy at the age of 46 she has saved hard for her own funeral so myself, my aunty and sister didn't need to worry until the end she still thinking about us!!!!
The kindest and bravest women I have ever met so now I just ask for a small contribution towards a holiday for the 3 young children as they have never been out the country or even on a plane so after the last two years of them seeing their mum going through this horrible illness I think they deserve to let loose enjoy themselves and just be kids again. Even if I just raise enough just so they can have a caravan holiday and the money that is left over I would like to put towards a headstone so she can have the best grave for the kids to visit.
Thank you everyone for the support you have all given me and my family I just want to give these children the best possible future ever, and to build on our memories of our beautiful mum, nanna and sister xxx
