Dallas-based crowdfunding campaigns more often target cancer than any other medical-related issue, according to research from the crowdfunding site YouCaring.
The site, one of several that allow individuals to set up pages to ask for donations, fed me some Dallas-specific numbers recently. YouCaring gives us a look at how the campaigns break down by category within Dallas:
45% of fundraisers are for cancer and cancerous tumors
28% for surgical interventions
11% neurological disorders
10% mental health
6% cardiovascular diseases
6% organ transplantation
6% gender and gender transition
2% reproductive system and infertility
The top Dallas campaign is also cancer-related; a campaign titled, “Join Katie in Her Fight Against Leukemia” raised more than $100,000.
