Weʼre raising £1,000 to provide funds for organisations who have assisted our family throughout our cancer treatment.

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.
Mitchie, is a 4 year old boy who was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma (a type of cancer that affects the brain and spine) in January 2017. Since then, his friends and family have all gotten together to raise money for Cancer Research UK, this idea snowballed and soon the whole village was wanting to get involved! We raised more money than we could have imagined and raised in excess of £25,000 in the space of a few months.
Mitchie has fought through a 10 hour brain surgery, 6 weeks of Radiotherapy and 4 months of Chemotherapy and come out the other side still smiling. Now we have decided to start up Mitchie's very own charity "Miles for Mitchie" and share all the funds we raise between local, childhood cancer related, charities. Ward 84, Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital Charity, The Brain Tumour Charity and Ronald McDonald House have all helped Mitchie and his family through their journey and have been chosen as charities we would like to help. Other local and relevant charities will also be considered.

About the fundraiser
Longridge, United Kingdom
My name is Tara and I'm wife to Tony and Mum to Zoe and Mitch. I spent most of 2017 in hospital with Mitch while he had treatment for Medulloblastoma, a type of brain and spine cancer. I am now doing my best to get Tony through his treatment for throat cancer.
