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 name is Rob. At the age of 53 there were two things that happened to me. I had two falls, a fortnight apart from.each other. Both resulted in a herniated disc.
Since 2014 when that happened, my ability to sit, stand or walk has been diminishing and it is down to the NHS and it's total refusal to do anything about it in terms of operating.
My only option is to go abroad, probably to India, or one of the Eastern block countries, where the surgery itself, to have a laminectomy, costs in excess of £5000 and then you get all the hidden extras like accommodation whilst I recover.
Please help me get the help I need or I shall be in a wheelchair by the time I am 60.
Thanks for reading this.
