About the Fund
This special fund has been inspired by Luke Wiltshire's story. Luke was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was 14 years old. 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.
Following Solving Kids’ Cancer’s public appeal for help, 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 ‘Luke was here’ engraved on a tree.
Luke sadly passed away in 2021 at the age of 23. Inspired by Luke, his legacy lives on through The Big Love Fund, helping us to reach and provide support to more families of children and young people affected by neuroblastoma.
