£3,910raised of £6,000 target by 96 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,910 to provide assistance to parents of 4yr old Tia, who has cancer & her 3yr old brother Ryan, who is severely disabled.

    London, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 17th September 2017

    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.


    It's been 2 months since being diagnosed & Tia has already endured so much with blood & platelet transfusions, lumbar punctures, retrievals of part of her bone marrow, just to name a few. Our sweet girl has been such a trooper but sadly still has a long road to recovery ahead of her. Her treatment plan is two and a half years long, so it’s going to be very taxing, to say the least!

    As we all know money can be tight at the best of times when you're raising a young family. I have set up this account to help support my sister Shaima and her husband Amr, so that they needn't worry about money & coping, but instead, can channel all they have into getting Tia well again, as well as ensuring that their severely disabled son’s care doesn’t become compromised along the way.

    Both parents are very hard working & committed to their children & family life, doing the best they can against the adversities that seem to repeatedly plague them. I have never been confronted with anything more soul destroying and it pains me to see their struggle, but even more so because I am unable to support them in the way that I wish I can. So the very least that I can do to assist their plight is try to raise as much money as possible, in an attempt to alleviate their financial burden.

    I am therefore kindly asking my extended family, friends & followers to unite in supporting my family in the long journey they have no choice but to embark upon.

    If you'd like to make either a single or regular donation, of any amount-both small or large- I’m certain it’ll help this beautiful family go a long way & is greatly appreciated. If you are unable to provide a monetary contribution, I'd kindly like to request that you share the link to this fundraising page with all your friends & families who may be able to support them instead.

    If you'd like more info, would like to make a direct payment or would like to contact the family, I will be their point of contact at

    Sadly, Tia’s younger brother also has challenges of his own having severe physical disabilities, learning difficulties & is non-verbal. He's 3 yrs old but only has the global ability of a 1 yr old. So it's a double whammy for the parents & is the reason they need extra help :(
