The Big Love Fund

This special fund has been inspired by Luke Wiltshire. Luke was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was 14 years old, Luke sadly passed away in 2021 at the age of 23. The Big Love Fund has been inspired by his legacy to help us reach and provide support, via a grant, to more families of children and young people affected by neuroblastoma and help their physical and emotional welfare. The fund is available to families across the UK and Ireland.  

You can help by making a donation, sharing Luke’s story and joining us to raise our voices together for children and young people facing neuroblastoma    

In 2021 Luke and his family received the devastating news that there were no more curative options for him. Having faced years of aggressive and toxic cancer treatment, Luke found solace and comfort in the world of Marvel and gaming and had a special wish to play the not yet released game, Marvel’s Midnight Suns from 2K and Firaxis Games. 

His wish to play this game sparked a remarkable series of events and a groundswell of support across social media from the gaming community, which resulted in Luke’s wish coming true.  Incredibly, 2K – the game’s publisher –reached out to Solving Kids’ Cancer UK and a member of the 2k team visited Luke with a special in-development version of the game, making Luke among the first few people in the world to have the chance to play. He is now forever immortalised in the game with a special tribute – his name engraved on a tree within the game.  

Luke’s sister, Claire, said of the fund, ““Luke was someone so special – I can’t wait for the fund to be launched so that other children and young people can be helped like he was. He would have given everything to ensure others were okay. His journey is our inspiration and his legacy will live on – he will be recognised just how he wanted to be.” 

In Luke’s own words – Big Love. Only Love. Always Love.
