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.
Gemma who I have got to know in the last year is a young INSPIRING woman not even over 35 years old with two amazing little girls, Scarlett age 5 and Ruby age 8, has secondary breast cancer to the spine which holds a reasonable prognosis if she get's the treatment she needs and of course it is effective. Stereotactic radiosurgery which has been recommended by her oncologist but unfortunately I’m not eligible for the trial as I didn’t have a cancer free time before I was diagnosed with secondaries.
She has been referred by my oncologist to a consultant on Harley street in London who are willing to treat me but the cost will be £16,500....
Hotels can cost from anything from £80 and up too, so it be good to cover these costs too as the last thing you need to worry about when going through cancer treatment. .
Because of Gemma having cancer, she was informed to put payments on hold because of this, she is unable to gain credit, and her dream was to move house but because of this, this is not an option but she would really love a new kitchen so any extra funds raised I for one would love it if Gemma could have her wish to have this, and any spare on a holiday or anything she desires.
While dealing with treatment, she has completed a 5 k walk for Breast Cancer and raised thousands for Breast Cancer, Blythe House, The Christie, and Maggies and not only that volunteer for the very first breast cancer run in Buxton and has held two fundraising nights as well as model at the Maggies catwalk event.
This is for Gemma AND I hope you agree she deserves this treatment and anything over is just a bonus which she so rightly deserves
I for one would like to have Gemma around for Years and Years to come, as she has been my rock the last Year and so even though she is going through this life changing illness, I hope we can at least get her to London for this hopefully life saving treatment
Who will stand by Gemma and donate £2 ?
