Libby's fundraiser for Bone Cancer Research Trust
Fundraising for Bone Cancer Research Trust
Libby is 8 years old and has recently been diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma which is a rare form of bone cancer.
She is currently in Birmingham children's hospital receiving treatment.
Since her diagnosis we have learnt a lot about bone cancer and have come to learn that not even 1% of funding from cancer research charities is used for research into bone cancer.
Bone cancer research trust does not receive ANY government funding.
We have set up this fundraiser to support this charity, so that they can continue their research into primary bone cancer.
"Our ultimate ambition is to find a cure for this cruel disease and we are making progress, but there is still a lot more to be done" - Bone Cancer Research Trust
"The Bone Cancer Research Trust is dedicated to saving lives & improving outcomes for people affected by primary bone cancer. Despite being small, they fund more research projects exploring primary bone cancer than any other organisation. Other large UK cancer research charities do not prioritise bone cancer patients, in 2019 just 0.028% of their research spend went to bone cancer – not even close to 1%!
Last year alone, Bone Cancer Research Trust committed an incredible £807,824 to pioneering bone cancer research - to save lives!"
