Team story

[p]On May 28th, I will be running the Vitality London 10K along with 11 other members of "Team Libs", in memory of my younger sister, Liberty Grace Schurer. For fourteen years, Libs was my best friend and partner in crime. She provided me with endless laughs, surprisingly good advice about boys and life in general and she was there for me no matter what, always the first to defend me.[/p][p]On her 13th birthday our lives were changed forever when Libs 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 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.[/p][p]Libs strength and determination is something I promised her I will carry with me every day for the rest of my life. 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 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 wish was therefore 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 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 sister's Legacy.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I just want to say thank you so much to all the other runners who have agreed to join me and be part of Team Libs - to further honour my butterfly mad sister, we will all be dressed as butterflies on the day![/p][p]Liberty Grace Schurer, 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.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
