‘Where there is a will there is a way’.

Leah sent up a donations page and it has received a whopping £50,000 in just a number of days.

Talking about the page she said:

‘I really did not expect or feel deserving of such interest and kindness.

‘And, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all the donations, the messages of encouragement, and for sharing the campaign.

‘I feel extremely blessed. We did not expect to raise anywhere near that amount, and certainly not in such a short space of time.’

She continued to say:

‘Having reached my initial target means I will be able to have the first stage of the treatment.

‘Depending on how I respond will determine the way forward and therefore we shall be continuing with the fundraising campaign.
