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’m Rosie (20) a Law Student. I’m raising £4000 for life-saving surgery, plus a better-suited wheelchair (£200) & med costs (£300). I caught Meningitis in 2016, recovered, but fell unwell last Summer with post-meningitis ME and Severe Fibromyalgia, alongside Endometriosis & Chronic Lyme Disease. Within a matter of weeks, I went from an active, aspiring-Lawyer, to a seriously ill individual. Over the past year, my 4 illnesses have deteriorated. (I’ve remained strong and carried on at Uni, watching recorded lectures & seminars as I went in & out of Hosp. One minute Brexit, the next MRIs). Recently, Docs have discovered (suspected) colon, ovarian, and cervical cancer. It’s terrifying.

Coming from a single-parent family of financial hardship, studying at Uni is financially tough, without the costs of falling ill (£2000+ so far). Sadly, it is likely my illnesses will deteriorate further. But, there is surgery that can IMPROVE one illness: endometriosis. I need the surgery URGENTLY (due to the cancer). However, the NHS HAS FAILED ME: their waiting list (Spring 2019) puts my life in danger. I need the laparoscopic removal of endo & investigation of cancer urgently, or I could die. I must go private. (It will not make me ‘better’, I will still be very unwell – but one illness potentially improved)

At present, I rely on sticks & a wheelchair. (Between the illnesses, symptoms include: severe chronic back, pelvic & calf pain, debilitating fatigue, nausea & bowel issues, fevers, difficulty walking, muscle weakness, brain fog, & menstrual issues (non-stop periods, bloating, sciatica, & womb-tissue in my organs)).

Your money will allow me to have surgery, get a better-suited wheelchair, and cover some medical costs. Thank you so, so much x

(Anything raised OVER £4500 would go towards future med costs, EG: weekly travel to Hospital, meds, special supplements, Lyme Treatment, hydrotherapy, spine physio. Anything beyond my med costs would go to charities linked to my illnesses)
