Louby's Lifeline continues to raise funds in memory of the bravest girl, please help Louby's family and friends to raise funds to cure this hateful disease.

On Wednesday 29th February 2012, Louby sadly passed away. February 2012 was the month that held the most emotions for everyone who knew and loved Laura Robertson Tierney - Louby.

Firstly, at the beginning of the month Lou was told that the tumours in her brain had become aggressive and there were no further treatment options, she was given 12 weeks to live. With bravery and determination Lou focussed on her forthcoming Birthday party.

She turned 18 on 7th February and had an amazing 18th Birthday party on 11th February, the excitement continued when she became engaged to her wonderful boyfriend, Jaden Thorpe on Valentine's Day. Louby's health continued to deteriorate, and mum Emma desperately wanted a beautiful garden for Lou to look out onto as she became weaker. BTRS helped Emma to organise a groundforce day, and the garden was transformed over the weekend of 25th February, and was completed on Tuesday 28th when the curtains were opened and Louby saw her lovely garden for the first time. Her health deteriorated overnight, and so desperately sadly, Louby died with her mum at 15.15 on Wednesday 29th February 2012. Louby was an amazing, beautiful, strong young woman, supported by an incredible group of family and friends who continue to support one another, living through the most difficult and devastating of times.

About Louby's Lifeline

Louby's Lifeline has been created as a fundraising page for the friends and family of Laura Tierney. Laura (or better known as Louby!) was diagnosed with three brain tumours in 2011 and has endured radiotherapy at St James' Hospital and intensive physiotherapy at Chapel Allerton hospital in Leeds.

Louby's friends and family have started raising funds and awareness in and around the Malton area, and have started a fantastic programme of fun events.

The first fundraiser was an awesome Zumbathon which raised £1500, coming soon is the Show Cross, a Ball, Prize Bingo and many other events that Louby's friends are staging! Watch this page for more information, or follow Louby on Facebook!/groups/236710353026470
