    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.


    During this tough road Mary has faced her positive energy and fighting spirit has been so inspiring to us all.

    Mary's world was turned upside down last year when she was told she had a very rare cancerous brain tumour. She had terrible pressurised headaches for 6 months before this with her GP saying that they were stress/tension headaches. One day they got so bad also with blurred vision she went straight to A&E. They were unsure if she should be given a CT scan because of the radiation risk, they thought she may just have migraines, eventually they did the scan and she couldn't believe it when they told her she had a mass on her brain she was told the tumour was in her cerebellum and that they would operate and remove as much as they could.

    Mary recovered well from the surgery she had to wait a week for results She was told it was cancerous and that it was a very rare brain tumour for adults only 1% of adults in the U.K have had this tumour, being more common in children.

    Mary's brain tumour is called a medulloblastoma, there is very little research done for treatment for adults, so the treatment she was to receive would be exactly like the treatment children have for this tumour.

    This would involve 6 weeks of radiotherapy and 6 cycles of chemotherapy. 6 weeks of radiotherapy on her brain and spine came a few weeks later followed by the chemotherapy.

    Some positive news Mary's last MRI scan in March was clear the treatment is working and she is looking forward to a happier and healthier future.

    Please help us raise as much money for our wonderful inspirational friend Mary!

    We would love for Mary to have a wonderful holiday away half will go towards this and half will be donated to the Brain Tumour Research Campaign.

    Many thanks
