Team story

[p]Thank you for supporting Liberty's Legacy! [/p][p]For those of you that don't already know, we sadly lost Liberty in October 2017 after she fought a courageous battle with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare and very aggressive form of primary Bone Cancer. She had just celebrated her 14th birthday 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, radiotherapy 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 - we really could not be more proud to call her our daughter.[/p][p]When Libs discovered the shocking news that despite everything she had been through her cancer had not only returned but spread and there was nothing further that could be done, her greatest wish was for no other young person or family to suffer and be ripped apart in the same way. She also did not want to be forgotten, remarkably being the only fear she ever expressed. And so within days of her gaining her wings on October 11th 2017, her idea for Liberty's Legacy was born in line with her wishes.[/p][p]Liberty's Legacy is a special fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust, dedicated to raising awareness and funds for life saving research. All monies raised are ringfenced specifically for research into Ewing's and the funds we have raised to date have already had a direct impact, with BCRT announcing two Ewing's specific Research Projects in 2018 and another £100k grant is to be awarded later this year.[/p][p]Survival rates for Ewing's have not improved in nearly 40 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 continue the fight that she so courageously started and continue to raise her funds in her name #UntilTheresACure.[/p][p]Thank you for reading and thank you for donating, together we can make a difference.[/p][p]To find out more about Liberty's Legacy, please follow us on Facebook @libertyslegacycharity, on Instagram @ Libertys_Legacy and on Twitter @LibertysLegacy3.[/p]
