The Big Love Fund
Supporting the The Big Love Fund means helping to provide financial grants to promote the physical and emotional wellbeing of children and young people affected by neuroblastoma in the UK.
This special fund has been inspired by Luke Wiltshire. Luke was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was 14 years old. He sadly passed away in 2021 at the age of 23. Luke would have given everything to ensure others were okay, which is what inspired this fund to do just that.
It was in 2021 that 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.
In Luke’s own words...
