Weʼre raising £5,000 to Help with my Mom's cancer treatment and my Sister's rehabilitation and care. I translated her letter and setted up this fundraising page.
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.
Hi, I'm Mario. I've translated my Mom's letter and helped her to set up this fundraising page.
Please, read her story.
"My name is Teresa, I live in Poland with my disabled daughter Ewa. She needs 24h care, but I can't provide it on my own.
My husband Piotr sadly passed away 6 years ago, he had a cancer.
Unfortunately I get a breast cancer last year and now I've to travel and stay in hotel to get a treatment - just finished my chemotherapy and now I've radiotherapy as well.
My other daughter sometimes can help me, but not all the time.
Beacuse of Ewa's disability I have to get earlier pension, and now, when we're on our own it's so little money, that's not enough for everything.
Sometimes I've to decide to pay bills, or buy medicines. Now, when I need to cover travel and other expenses to continue my treatment, my debts just get bigger.
My son set this fundraising page for me, as he said, that people in UK would understand and help.
I don't ask for a lot, and I expect nothing to do not be disappointed, but if you read it and you feel, that you can help with any amount of money, be aware, that it will means so much for us. We'll be truly grateful and you'll make our life much easier.
I would like to wake up one day and not to worry about my debts, bills, care for my daughter. I getting older and weaker and she need so much attention and energy...
Sometimes I'm just so tired, that I think I can't do it anymore, but then I see Ewa's face...
She can't talk to me, but I know, that she love me in her own way and she needs me.
Thank you for reading my story and any little help you can offer.
With greetings and love from Poland
