Weʼre raising £40,000 to help my dear friend who has a brain tumour (Glioblastoma) to maintain his life at home & access the medicines & therapies he needs

Brighton, UK

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.

Story

My dear friend has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour (Glioblastoma) which is very aggressive and subsequently has quickly changed what he can physically do and therefore the levels of assistance and therapies he needs. Since having brain surgery last summer, he has been unable to work and needs our help now.

We are trying to raise money for him to be able to retain his independence for as long as possible, which requires visiting help, neuro - physiotherapy, oxygen therapy, cranial sacrial therapy, alternative therapies and supplements. A significantly huge cost are the "Herbal Remedies" that have been having a positive effect on his health but need increasing to really help the fight against tumour growth and his frequent seizures. The biggest and most necessary cost will be his medical appointments both in the UK and in Germany, where they offer a procedure that he cannot access here. We have extensively researched all options and reached out to other GBM survivors to get the best possible outcome and quality of life for him.

Our friend Jason, aka Shaggy, is a unique, treasured friend who's always been the life and soul of the party, a hugely talented graphic designer, a stylish music loving, artist who loves his dog, Scooby!
Since his diagnosis he's made many complete changes to his life to give himself the best possible outcomes, including a ketogenic organic vegan diet - this for a meat & potatoes, party animal is quite a conversion!

Please help us to support Shaggy as best we can so that he may enjoy his life in Brighton and continue his brave fight. Your donation will be more than just desperately needed funds, it will be giving him hope and love and you'll be joining a Community of people who want alternative therapies & herbal remedies to be part of our life saving choices.

Thank you and much love to you all! x

    I am feeling pretty good at the moment the natural remedies are doing good things. Since my Harley Street appointment I have been receiving new medicines which I am responding to and most recent scan results show that things are stable. The funds you've given have opened up possibilities of other things I can try and really help relieve the financial pressure and stress. I will report back again with news and progress! Love Shaggy x
