    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    This is Luke Stewart (sitting on his dad's knee), son of Jennifer and Mark, brother of Lewis and Lochlin. Luke is 7 years old and has just been diagnosed with a very rare brain tumour, called a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma (DIPG).

    The best way to treat this rare tumour is for Luke to take part in a ground breaking clinical trial. He will receive CED (Convection Enhanced Delivery). This trial will help not only Luke, but children worldwide in the future.

    This treatment does not come cheap, it is Circa £100,000.

    We are reaching out to the British Public to help us raise the funds required for Luke to have his treatment down in London.

    Luke, his brothers and friends are not aware of the situation and we would like to keep it that way for obvious reasons. We would appreciate it if you could respect the families wishes and not pass this information onto your children.

    If your children do ask about Luke, please could you say that he has not been feeling too well, and that he needs to be looked after by a doctor in London.

    We need to raise this money really quickly to get Luke onto this trial, to try and save his life.

    We know its January and money is tight, but if you could even spare a couple of pounds it would make a huge difference.

    As you can imagine Jenny, Mark and the family are still taking all of this information in, we would ask you instead of contacting them directly to leave any comments of comfort below, then they can take the time to read them all when they feel ready to.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read.
