Team story

[p]2019- Saw us complete 6 half Marathons and 1 20 mile Run 🏅 [/p][p]2022 - David and I will be taking on Brighton Marathon on 10th April 2022. (Postponed from 2020) This will be a big challenge for us, especially me as it comes just 9months after i will have had our baby and be the furthest distance i have ever run... leaving little time to train![/p][p]Libs will forever be my inspiration and motivation! For 14 years she lite up the world, inspired and made everybody she met smile! What I wouldn’t give to see that smile or hear her laugh again![/p][p]On her 13th birthday was when Liberty’s life was changed forever & she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare and very aggressive form of bone cancer. She fought with such courage and bravery and still continued to make us laugh and smile throughout her treatment. Whilst I always knew what a strong person she was, she amazed and inspired everyone from people like me to complete strangers with her sheer determination and positive attitude.[/p][p]Just as she was coming to the end of her treatment, Libs discovered a new lump in her leg and it was then we were told that despite the incredibly toxic chemotherapy treatment, stem cell transplant and surgery she had endured, the cancer had spread and there was nothing further that could be done. But still she never gave up and in true Libs fashion fought on for a further 2 months, despite such immense pain that no person should ever have to endure, gaining her angel wings just 2 weeks after her 14th birthday on October 11th 2017.[/p][p]Libs strength and determination is the sole thing that i know will carry me through all of these runs! I am terrified of the challenge but i know she will be cheering us on and when i think of the awful pain she endured during her last year and challenges she battled every day i know without a doubt this will not compare. [/p][p]A soul as special as hers is both a blessing and a rarity and one that can never and will never be forgotten. She had such a loving heart and always thought of others before herself, which is how the idea for Liberty's Legacy first came about. 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 wish was therefore that we fundraise in her name, she did not want to be forgotten and wanted to raise both awareness and funds for lifesaving research into this deadly disease.[/p][p]Liberty's Legacy is a special fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust, specifically raising funds for Ewing's, so that one day we can find a cure and fulfil my amazing cousins legacy.[/p][p] Every £1 you can spare really does make a difference and every £30 raised is another hour of life saving research funded and both David and I will be incredibly grateful for anything that you can spare. Thank you so much for reading our story.[/p][p]You can find Liberty's Legacy on Facebook @libertyslegacycharity, Instagaram @libertys_legacy and Twitter @libertyslegacy3 [/p]
