Team story

[p]On May 20th, we will be running (or in my case walking) the Gerrards Cross 5K Fun Run along with over 70 other members of #TeamLibs, as well as 4 dogs, in memory of my truly amazing and inspirational youngest daughter, Liberty Grace Schurer. [/p][p]For fourteen years, Libs was my best friend, my soul mate and the glue that held our family together, despite being the youngest member. She provided us with endless laughs with her oh so naughty, wicked sense of humour and her dazzling smile, for which she was so well known, could light up the darkest of days.[/p][p]On her 13th birthday in September 2016, our lives were changed forever when Libs was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare and very aggressive form of bone cancer. For over 13 months she fought with such courage, bravery and a fierce determination, enduring gruelling chemotherapy, major surgery and reconstruction, a stem cell transplant and radiotherapy. We could not have been more proud, she amazed and inspired everyone from close family and hospital staff to complete strangers with her positive attitude, that smile rarely slipping. She just got on with it in typical Libs fashion.[/p][p]Devastatingly, just as she was coming to the end of her treatment in late August 2017, Libs discovered a new lump in her leg and it was then we were told that the cancer had spread and there was nothing further that could be done. But still my warrior princess never gave up and she opted for yet more gruelling chemo in the hope of extending her life for just a few more precious weeks or months with her friends and family, despite such immense pain that no person should ever have to endure. The tumour burden however was just too great for her now frail body and the cancer too aggressive and Liberty gained her angel wings only 2 weeks after celebrating her 14th birthday, on October 11th 2017.[/p][p]Libs strength and determination is something we all promised her we would carry with us every day for the rest of our lives. A soul as special as hers is both a blessing and a rarity and one that can never and will never be forgotten. I could not be more proud to say I am her mum. She handled both her treatment and then terminal diagnosis with a maturity far exceeding her tender years and deserved so much more. She had such a loving heart and always thought of others before herself, which is how the idea for Liberty's Legacy came to fruition. Libs was frustrated by the lack of funding into research for childhood cancers, the survival rates for sarcomas like hers had not improved in over 30 years. Her treatment protocol too was decades old and designed for adults. Her greatest wish therefore was that we fundraise in her name, she did not want to be forgotten, to raise both awareness and funds for lifesaving research into this deadly form of the disease.[/p][p]So on May 20th we will be donning our bright orange Bone Cancer Research Trust Tshirts with pride and many of #TeamLibs will also be sporting butterfly wings in Libs memory - from a very young age she was absolutely mad about butterflies![/p][p]The whole family want to say a HUGE thank you to all the other runners who have agreed to join us and be part of #TeamLibs, we are genuinely so touched to see so many of her friends and family as well as the wider community joining us. It really does mean so much and hopefully it will get us another step closer to fulfilling her legacy, Liberty's Legacy - until one day there is a cure.[/p][p]Liberty Grace Schurer, you are so deeply missed, more that you will ever know and our hearts are forever broken. I love you to the moon and back forever and always will. I know you will be there by my side on race day, supporting me just as you always have. Love forever, Mum xx[/p][p][b]Liberty's Legacy is a special fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust, specifically raising funds for life saving research into Ewing Sarcoma.
