My story

[p]OMG! I must be mad as I’ve just signed up to take on the Bone Cancer Research Trust’s epic Challenge to Cycle 500 miles in June! That’s 805km, not for the faint hearted....or old blokes like me!!!! But then again I would do anything for my beautiful and deeply missed Liberty Grace. This year we should be celebrating her 18th birthday in September...over 3 years on and I still can’t believe she’s not here. So despite the restrictions to our fundraising the pandemic continues to pose, we are more determined than ever to get to the magic half million pound mark this year! So I’m happy to once again be donning my orange Lycra and playing my part....though I don’t think my body will be thanking me by the end of this, especially with working on my feet all day and still trying to make up the hours after being closed for so long! [/p][p]As many of you will know, we sadly lost Liberty in October 2017 after she fought a courageous battle with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare and very aggressive form of primary Bone Cancer predominantly affecting children and especially teenagers. She had just celebrated her 14th birthday.[/p][p]Throughout her treatment, Liberty was as an inspiration with how bravely she faced everything and she refused to let this cruel disease define her. When Libs discovered that her cancer had spread and nothing further could be done, her greatest wishes were to not be forgotten and for no other young person or family to suffer in the same way. And so her idea for Liberty's Legacy was born and subsequently set up to raise awareness and funds for Ewings research in her name. [/p][p]Since February 2018, Liberty's Legacy has been a special fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust, with all monies raised to be used specifically for research into Ewing's, as per her wishes. Already the funds have had a direct impact, with several research projects underway. But we know it's just the tip of the iceberg and every penny raised really does count and will make a difference if we are to change the landscape for future children diagnosed with this brutal disease.[/p][p]Survival rates for Ewing's have not improved in nearly 40 years and the treatment protocol that Liberty received was not only designed for adults, but was decades old. With your help we urgently need to change this so that children like Liberty have a fighting chance - she had so much to offer and deserved so much more and I could not be more proud to call her my daughter.[/p][p]Thank you for reading and thank you for donating.
