My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. On July 4th I will be jumping out a plane from 13,000 ft for #TeamLibs to raise money for Liberty’s Legacy.[/p][p][br][/p][p]On her 13th birthday, liberty was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of bone cancer.[/p][p] Days after finishing her treatment in August 2017, liberty discovered a new lump and devastatingly the cancer had returned and spread extensively throughout her lungs, liver and lymph glands. There was nothing more that could be done. [/p][p][br][/p][p]But still she fought on with that fierce [/p][p]determination that she was so known for, opting for yet more chemotherapy to try and extend her life. But the cancer was just too aggressive, the tumour burden too great, her now tiny frame just too weak.[/p][p][br][/p][p]It was during these last few weeks that the idea for Liberty's Legacy was born. Throughout libertys fight, her biggest frustration was the total lack of funding and research into this deadly form of the disease. The protocol with which she was treated was decades old, designed for adults, and most shockingly survival rates for Ewing's have not improved in nearly 40 years. How could this be?[/p][p] [/p][p]Liberty's greatest wish was that we fundraise in her name, with all proceeds to go towards research into Ewing's, so that no other child need suffer in the same way and no other family be devastatingly ripped apart. Through Liberty's Legacy, we hope that her name will live on and allow us to bring Liberty into the future with us, and give honour and meaning to her life.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I feel so lucky to have known Liberty. Even though I wish it could have been for so much longer, I want to do everything I can to carry on her legacy forever and make her proud. I hope that one day her wish can be fulfilled and that nobody ever has to go through what she did. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Love you Libs I know you will be there with me when I am hanging out of a plane crapping myself !!!! xxxxx[/p]
