Team story

[p]On June 17th 2018, in memory of my beautiful and deeply missed daughter, Liberty Grace Schurer, I will be donning my cycling gear and taking on the challenge of the iconic London to Brighton Bike Ride, covering 54 miles from Clapham Common to Brighton Seafront! As somewhat of a novice to cycling, I am thrilled to be supported by #TeamLibs members, Martin Fenner, Rob and Richard.[/p][p]As many of you will know, I sadly lost Liberty in October last year after she fought a courageous battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare and very aggressive form of primary Bone Cancer. She had just celebrated her 14th birthday only 2 weeks before and our lives have been changed forever, she has left a gaping hole that cannot be filled.[/p][p]Throughout her treatment, Liberty shone brightly as an inspiration to so many with how bravely and valiantly she faced everything thrown at her, from gruelling chemotherapy, hair loss, chronic nausea and biopsies, to limb salvage surgeries and a stem cell transplant. She refused to let this cruel disease define her and the dazzling smile for which she was so well known and wicked sense of humour rarely faded, despite everything she had to endure.[/p][p]Liberty has become a legend to those who knew her best, but also a sparkling inspiration to countless others who never had the privilege to meet her and I could not be more proud to call her my daughter.[/p][p]When Libs discovered that the cancer had spread and that nothing further could be done, her greatest wish was to not be forgotten and for no other young person or family to suffer and be ripped apart in the same way. And so within days of her gaining her wings on October 11th 2017, her idea for Liberty's Legacy was set up, as per her wishes.[/p][p]Liberty's Legacy is a special tribute fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust, raising much needed funds for life saving research. All monies raised for Liberty's Legacy are ringfenced specifically for research into Ewing's, as was her wish. Already the funds we have raised in the first 6 months have had a direct impact, with BCRT announcing in March an exciting Ewing's specific Research Project, and we know there is more exciting news just around the corner![/p][p]Survival rates for Ewing's have not improved in over 30 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. [/p][p]We are determined to honour her Legacy and make a difference and will keep on fighting and raising funds in her name...until there is a cure.[/p][p]Thank you for reading and thank you for donating, together we can make a difference.
