My story

[p]On July 4th I will be jumping out of a plane 13,000 ft for the #Leap4Liberty fundraiser to raise money for Liberty's Legacy.[/p][p]Liberty was diagnosed with [url=http://www.bcrt.org.uk/information/information-by-type/ewing-sarcoma/]Ewing sarcoma[/url] of her tibia, one of the rarer but very aggressive forms of primary bone cancer, on her 13th birthday in September 2016.[/p][p]Liberty handled the news with such dignity, grace and a maturity far exceeding her 13 years. She did not want any other child to suffer as she had, or other families to be ripped apart in the same way, and she also wanted her name to live on and to be remembered so this is where Liberty's Legacy was born. Her wish was that her family continue to raise awareness and funds for vital research specifically into Ewing's, for which survival rates have shockingly not improved in nearly 40 years and treatment protocols are decades old.[/p][p]After finishing her treatment in August 2017, Liberty discovered a new lump which devastatingly had extensively spread throughout her lungs, her liver, and her lymph glands. With this heart-breaking news, libs still fought on with that fierce determination she was known for, opting for chemotherapy to try and extend her life.[/p][p]After a courageous 13 month battle with cancer, liberty sadly gained her angel wings on October 11th 2017, just 2 weeks after celebrating her 14th birthday. [/p][p]Liberty should have been turning 18 this year just like I am. [/p][p]So I am doing a 13,000 foot skydive as I think this is such an amazing charity and more research needs to be done as no child or family should have to go through this. Please donate and help Liberty's legacy live on.[/p][p]Thank you x [/p][p] [/p][p] [/p]
