    Story

    Ed and Laura Lambert are raising funds for Lucas' Legacy by running the Stafford Half Marathon on Sunday 19 March 2017.

    Lucas Williams was a very precious and much loved boy. He had never been ill or had a day off school before May 2015 when he was suddenly taken poorly. The following day he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Despite fighting with great courage and bravery, Lucas died just 11 weeks later, 4-weeks before his 7th birthday.

    Throughout his illness Lucas showed a humbling bravery. He went to school for as long as he could. His teacher, described Lucas as “a shining example to us all.'

    Lucas' Legacy is a registered charity raising awareness and funding for Childhood Brain Tumour Research to help find new and more effective treatments for other children.

    In January 2016 Lucas' parents (Jo and Andrew Williams) pledged to raise £50,000 in Lucas' name. In under 12-months with the help of many people they have raised over £100,000 and set up Lucas' Legacy as a registered charity.

    If you would like to help give other children a better chance of fighting this devastating illness then please donate to LUCAS' LEGACY.

    Brain tumours are responsible for more cancer deaths in children and young people than any other type of tumour. Despite this brain tumour research receives just 0.5% of all cancer research funding.

    Lucas' Legacy is working with the UK's leading Scientists at The Institute for Cancer Research - the UK’s top academic research centre to undertake research with the aim of leading to improved survival in children with this illness in the future.

    16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour every year in the UK and more children, and adults under 40, die from this type of cancer than any other. The lack of investment in research means there are few treatments available.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
