    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

    Isaac was born in May 2016 with his intestines outside his body. His family live in Liverton Mines, East Cleveland but Isaac had to be born at Newcastle's RVI. He had his first operation at less than 12 hours old and has endured several more. At 2 months old his parents were told to expect the worst as he was rushed down for another life saving operation, the odds were not in his favour but this little fighter has surprised us all! After several more operations and lots of specialist care he is still there. He has had more than enough thrown at him and he has fought them all. His mum has never left his side since he was born which is very hard on Ellie and Bailey, his siblings. They miss their mum and want to see their brother. His mum can stay with him in the hospital but it costs her almost £20 per day just for parking. Isaacs dad travels to Newcastle 4/5 times per week after a full days work as a builder, whilst family and friends help to look after Ellie and Bailey. That then incurs another parking bill as well as travelling costs

    The family have been told that Isaac will not be out of hospital this year and maybe not until well into next year, this all adds to the cost. He needs specialist care which can't be provided anywhere else.

    This funding will be for the families on-going costs of staying at the hospital as well as allowing time off work if needed and maybe the odd hotel room for the family to enjoy some time together away from the hospital.

    They can't get any help with hospital costs as they are classed as a working family!

    As Isaacs Nanna, I am setting up this page but I am not doing it on my own, friends and family have all asked how they can help. I know this is a very expensive time of year for people but please even giving £1 will all add up. I will start this funding by adding £100. Any sponsored events or fund raising ideas would be gratefully received.

    I hope my son doesn't hate me for this!!!

    Thank you all xxx
