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.

Isabella is a pupil at Shepwell School. Like most girls her age, 10 year old Isabella enjoys Disney, crafting and playing with her friends. Strong and positive, her maturity is way beyond her years!
Sadly however, Isabella has spent much of her childhood in hospital, fighting hard to be where she is today. She was diagnosed in October 2010 with high risk neuroblastoma, when she was 3 ½ years old. Having gone through a gruelling treatment regime, she achieved remission in April 2012, much to her family’s delight. While they desperately hoped they’d be able to put the nightmare behind them, this hasn’t been possible.
Since Isabella’s diagnosis, she has relapsed a further 3 times, most recently in March 2017.
Isabella is being treated with chemotherapy to try and stop the growth of the tumours but her next stage of treatment may involve a new Phase 1 clinical trial in the UK. With no results from the trial, it’s impossible for everyone involved in Isabella’s care to ascertain whether this will be successful for her. “If the phase 1 trial is unsuccessful then we know we will have to take Isabella overseas for treatment as we will have exhausted all options in the UK,” Jennie and Mark, Isabella’s parents.
Trying to be prepared, they are now researching all options. Should the best option for Isabella exist overseas, which will not be NHS-funded, Shepwell School and her parents are appealing for your support to help raise funds to access the treatment when they need to.
We are devastated to hear that once again, Isabella has relapsed, and she is again battling for her life at the age of ten. Please donate anything you can to support this brave little girl. Thank You.
