Weʼve raised £1,930 to to help Sally Simpson on her road to recovery from breast cancer
- Funded on Saturday, 1st September 2018
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.
Sally lives in Australia with her beautiful family working full time as a nurse. Unfortunately, early in April 2018, she had the devastating news that she has an aggressive form of breast cancer, the same illness that sadly took the life of her mother at the age of 44.
To make matters worse for Sally and her family, she works full time in the health service with NO SICKNESS PAY. As you can imagine, this is a very stressful situation to put anyone in, especially someone that has a family to support.
In order to get better, Sally has to have major surgery, a double mastectomy and intense chemotherapy for 12months. She will not be able to work for a MINIMUM OF 3 MONTHS, she will not even be able to tie her shoe for 3weeks! This beautiful women, not only has to fight such an evil disease, but she also has the added stress of how she is going to pay her bills.
We are putting together this fundraising page, and trying every crazy money making idea to try and help alleviate some of that financial worry for Sally and her family. Any contribution, big or small will go a long way in helping Sally back to the road of recovery.

Hey everyone! Just thought I'd give you guys an update... I'm still plodding away building up to running 10k at the end of the month, so far I'm at 4K, I know I still have a long way to go, but knees are staying healthy and strong with acupuncture and turmeric tea, so I am happy! Brad my brother, is doing an amazing job, he has run 75miles so far this month out of the 150miles he has signed up to do in the month of May. I know he has really struggled with running over 10k a night, especially with an 8month old.Thank you for all the donations!
