A charity set up in the memory of a teenager who died from a rare form of cancer raised more than £4,000 from a screening of Coyote Ugly in Gerrards Cross this week.

Liberty’s Legacy hosted a special screening of the film in Gerrards Cross, with leading man and charity patron Adam Garcia making an appearance.

The charity was set up by the Schurer family in October 2017 following the devastating loss of their daughter, Liberty Grace, just two weeks after celebrating her 14th birthday.

Liberty, who lived in Chalfont St Peter and attended Dr Challoners High School, had been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, in 2016 and, upon discovering her terminal diagnosis, wanted her family to raise money for vital research in her name.

The charity has since gone from strength-to-strength and is now a special named tribute fund of the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

Liberty’s mum, Karen, said: “It was such an enjoyable evening full of fun and laughter, just as Liberty would have wanted, and we can’t thank Adam enough for his continued support.”

“Trying to fulfil Liberty’s wishes has not always been easy in the midst of our profound grief, in fact at times it’s been incredibly hard and events such as this are always so very bittersweet.

“It would have literally been a dream come true for her to have been sat there with Adam and all her friends and family, watching one of her favourite films.”
