Liberty had a zest for life and amazed everyone during her treatment. She rarely complained and just got on with it. She was known to throw on her wig, lashes and make-up and dash out to the next party or next school disco. No matter what was thrown at her – chemotherapy, hair loss, transfusions, vomiting, 9-hour limb salvage surgery, learning to walk again, stem cell transplant, liver failure, relentless scans and tests or intensive radiotherapy. Liberty faced it all head on, she was a true warrior princess and heroine in every sense of the word.
We are delighted to be partnering with Children with Cancer UK, their donation of £1million will allow us to launch this project which we hope will have a transformational effect on new treatment options for Ewing sarcoma patients. It was Liberty’s wish that no other children would suffer like she had and that other families wouldn’t be ripped apart in the same way and it is this determination and strength from patients like Liberty that is at the heart of this new collaboration. Together our charities are striving to find kinder and more effective treatments to improve outcomes for future Ewing sarcoma patients.
Children with Cancer UK is proud to collaborate with the Bone Cancer Research Trust. It is the courage and strength of incredibly brave children like Liberty that drives us to ensure that we continue to do all we can to support dedicated researchers to drive kinder and more effective treatments. Partnering with the Bone Cancer Research Trust to accelerate research into Ewing sarcoma is another vital step to wards our end goal of a world where every child and young person survives cancer.Details on the £1 million grant application process is available on the Bone Cancer Research Trust website. Funded is expected to be awarded in December 2023.
