My story

[p]On the 3rd of October 2021, I will be running the Virgin Money London Marathon for the charity Liberty’s Legacy to raise money in memory of Liberty Grace Schurer.[/p][p]Liberty sadly passed away on October 11th 2017, after being diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in September 2016, a very rare form of Bone Cancer. Liberty’s wish was to raise money and awareness in her name to go towards future funding in researching childhood cancers, an area which has been underfunded previously.[/p][p]Although I did not know Liberty myself, my younger brother Alex was very good friends with Liberty and remembers her as a kind, warm hearted girl who always had a smile on her face when you were around her.[/p][p]Before the coronavirus, it was reported that UK cancer research charities had reduced their investment into Bone Cancer Research Trust for the third consecutive year in a row, by 17% to just under £200,000. This outlines the need for change. Every 10 minutes somewhere another child, teenager or adult is diagnosed with this brutal disease and they face a 5-year chance of survival at little over 50%. This drops even further if the disease is discovered late and has already progressed. It is of the utmost importance that we act now and together in order to work towards one day finding a cure for this disease![/p][p]Liberty’s Legacy, as a special fund of Bone Cancer Research Trust, saw fundraising nearly halved from £155,000 in 2019 to just over £80,000 in 2020. If Liberty's Legacy is to continue successfully fundraising for BCRT, it is vital that 2021 is different![/p][p]Every donation made will contribute greatly to this fantastic cause, in memory of Liberty![/p][p]Thank you![/p][p]Charlie X [/p][p][br][/p]
