Weʼre raising £2,800 to To raise funds for an insulin pump for Alexey, he could die if he doesn't receive this pump as currently it's hard to control his diabetes

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Alexey is 12 years old, he has been battling diabetes for several years. His condition is so serious, he has lost his sight twice,fortunately it returned. He currently has to inject insulin five times a day, however due to changes in his body, it is difficult to stabilise. Alexey regularly has to stay in hospital, his mum has to pay for these stays, she is a social worker and is very low paid.

On our recent trip to Ukraine, we met Alexey and his mum, it was heartbreaking to listen to Natallia telling us about Alexey and how she worries she may lose him, Even more heartbreaking, was to hear that Lexey said to his mum, "I wish I could die and be born healthy".

Lexey needs an Insulin pump, this will administer insulin regularly and stabilise his diabetes. Once he has the pump, he will need regular consumables which will cost his mums monthly salary. Neil and I have decided to help her but we want to raise the money to buy him a pump asap.

Whilst we were on our trip, we met a young lady, in the same situation as Lexey, before xmas,they didnt think she would make xmas. However, she was provided with a pump following fundraising, and now her diabetes is stabilised.

We would appreciate any support you can give, and you would know exactly where your money has gone and we would give regular updates on his progress.

We thank you in advance.

    Hello everyone, just to give you an update. We are up to £2300..that us amazing and so generous, thank you. Alexey is currently in hospital, because of the seriousness of his condition, he will be moved to a hospital in Kiev at the end of the month. This hospital is the equivalent of great ormond street, so he will be in great hands. Unlike our country, his mum Natalia will have to pay for this care so we will continue to fundraise to help her. By the time Alexey comes out,he will have his pump thanks to your generosity,thank you so much.
