Weʼve raised £616 to make lasting family memories.
- Funded on Monday, 18th September 2017
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.
This picture is of Andrew, Fiona, Megan and Harry they are a normal family. Andrew likes "his" chair with "his" remote controls, Fiona likes making bags, Megan likes spending ages looking at Facebook's funny dog clips, Harry likes eating, and their two dogs Mitch and Ozzy like lamp-posts.
Andrew has cancer, he was told this just before Christmas last year, it's mainly in his Bowel put plenty of other places too, it's incurable but the great people of our health service are trying everything possible to control it and extend his life.
Last summer was their first family holiday abroad, to Holland, it was to be the beginning of something new after years of not having a summer holiday at all but cancer has stopped that, the treatment means no travel out the country, even getting out of the house at times can be a mammoth task.
Andrew's challenge is to stay alive and fight this cancer, ours, is to do a number of increasingly punishing and ridiculous challenges which allows everyone to focus on something other than the spectre of cancer that travels permanently with them.
Family is important to them as it is to us all and the money from this page will go to ensuring they have the sort of lasting family memories that we can all, sometimes, take for granted. The more money we can gather the bigger those memories can be, there is a wish list and your support and help will make those wishes happen.
We want everyone to be with us on this journey and create our own mini community to be part of the challenges and also the experiences they will have, that's why we have our blog "running late for cancer" on Facebook. If you haven't had a look please head there now, after donating that is ;-).
Challenge 1 = Edinburgh Marathon.
Next Challenge = Come and vote on the Blog. You Decide!
