My story

[p]Hello, I am lulu and i have set up a funding page to raise money for Liberty’s Legacy. Liberty’s Legacy is a special fund of the bone cancer research trust reasoning vital funds for life saving research into Ewing’s Sarcoma.[/p][p]My story...[/p][p]Liberty Schurer was one of my best friends growing up, we met when we were only 7 years old and continued our friendship right through middle school to secondary. Liberty was loving, funny, crazy and amazing friend who never failed to make me laugh. Libs was one of a kind. Sadly in September 2016 on Liberty’s 13th birthday, she was diagnosed with a rare and very aggressive form of bone cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma. [/p][p]During her gruelling treatment, Liberty was an absolute inspiration to all of us, she just got on with it in a typical libs fashion, rarely loosing her amazing sense of humour, that dazzling smile, for which she will always be remembered, rarely slipping from her face. 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 heartbreaking news, libs still fought on with that fierce determination she was known for, opting for chemotherapy to try and extend her life. [/p][p]At this moment i couldn’t of been more proud of her, she truly was the strongest person i knew and she became my inspiration. Throughout the tough year she had, her friends and i did all we could with hospital visits, movie evenings, regular face time calls and tried our hardest so she could make all the party’s at the time we all know we’re so important to her and made sure she never missed out.[/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]It was during these last few weeks that the idea for Liberty's Legacy was born. Throughout the course of her illness Liberty's biggest frustration and indeed ours, was the total lack of funding and research into this deadly form of the disease. The protocol with which she was treated was decades old, designed for adults, and most shockingly survival rates for Ewing's have not improved in nearly 40 years. How could this be?[/p][p]Liberty's greatest wish was that we fundraise in her name, with all proceeds to go towards research into Ewing's, so that no other child need suffer in the same way and no other family be devastatingly ripped apart. Through Liberty's Legacy, we hope that her name will live on and allow us to bring Liberty into the future with us, and give honour and meaning to her life.[/p][p]As her friend, I will continue to support and keep her legacy going so she will be remembered for the person she was, not only this but to help other children so they won’t have to suffer in the same way she did. [/p][p]So, i will be taking part in a skydive jump from 13,000 feet in July with many of other libs friends and family who are also supporting the amazing cause. I am so grateful for this experience and that the money i will be raising will be going to such an important cause. I have always wanted to jump out of a plane and the opportunity to do so at this age with liberty’s family watching from below as i make libs proud. I will be doing this in honour of my best friend and helping liberty’s legacy get closer to raising as much money as they can. I have been in awe of how well liberty’s family have done for the Legacy and i am honoured to be contributing to push us further to a higher figure. [/p][p]I hope to continue making liberty proud and help Karen, Darren and Liv complete Liberty’s last request. So i ask you for a donation to help me reach my minimum goal of £500, with all funds going straight to Liberty’s Legacy. [/p][p]Thank you x[/p][p][br][/p]
