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.
For those who don't know Stefancia, she is a kind and loving person who has a passion for working with young people, music, using her gifts wherever she was needed until 2015 when her pains began.
After 3 years of pain and hospital visits, Stefancia has been diagnosed with Arthritis (Sacroiliitis). She has intermittent pain which makes it impossible to function for a significant period without assistance. She has made complete diet and lifestyle changes to try and improve but there isn't much more she can do giving her condition and circumstances.
As said in past at a midwives suggestion, we saw a chiropractor but was advised by her Rheumatologist to not go ahead with this treatment.
We are now looking into other alternatives such as, Natural Remedies, Wellness Centres and Yoga as we've been told there is no cure, but believe with the right treatment the body can heal itself.
Stefancia can't undo the damage but with quick action she can improve her mobility and slow the deterioration.
It saddens me to see Stefancia upset as she is unable to help us without being in pain. Studying full-time and looking after her and the girls makes it impossible to work at the moment without help.
The Wellness Centre is located outside of the UK. Stefancia will need 1 to 1 Yoga sessions to ensure she doesn't do further damage to her body. Helping Stefancia means giving her more independence and a better quality of life and by extension, our family.
The donations will go towards the journey, paying for treatment and any essential items for her mobility. We appreciate the help we have from family and friends but we are a long way away from helping Stefancia's health improve.
Our current goal is to raise enough funds to start the treatments. We don't know how long it will take. Any help to meet or go beyond this initial goal is greatly appreciated. A percentage of the money we raise will go towards St Lukes Hospice, as Stefancia has requested.
Thank you so much and God bless.
