    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

    Tommy was 3 years old when a MRI scan for Nystagmus (a visual impairment) found a tumour in his brain. Three major brain surgeries later over an 18 month period, he was diagnosed with a rare grade 4 cancerous PNET tumour. He now requires radiotherapy and aggressive chemotherapy as the tumour is now inoperable. His parents, Paul and Lisa Lines have had an agonising 5 week wait to learn that Tommy has been given funding by the NHS for Proton Beam Therapy in America.

      Update from the Page owner

      How can we thank you all for your amazing generosity? Crowd Funding page reached the target and has collected a huge amount of money for Lisa, Paul, Tommy and Ellie. This has taken a huge weight off their minds while Tommy has been receiving Proton Beam Therapy in America. Tommy is making good progress and has taken the treatment in his stride. The Proton Centre has taken great care of him throughout his treatment, he has just three more sessions to go. The family are looking forward to coming home in ten days time. By now all the pledges should have been taken from bank accounts, however I have been advised that some of the pledges failed to materialise and I would ask you to check your bank account and contact me if you have a query. My email is kathiekirby77@hotmail.com Thank you again you are all wonderful people.

    Paul and Lisa Lines are very close friends and we want to help them in any way we can. So by setting up a Just-giving page, we hope to be able to raise enough money to cover their associated costs for seven months while Tommy has treatment in the US and back home in the UK.
