Luke's Life Legacy

£58,781 of £250,000 goal

Raised by 455 people in 50 months
Sadly, Luke passed away peacefully at home having tuddles on June 11th, aged 4.

Luke's legacy will live on and it is hoped that the cash raised to date for Luke, will fund research into brain tumours to help other children like him.

Luke’s Life Long Labour will now be changed to Luke’s Life Long Legacy and registered as a charity.

Whilst these changes are taking place, we are still accepting donations as all money will roll forward to help others like our brave little Luke.

Thank you.

Luke’s Life Long Labour is a newly formed group raising money for Luke Collins and his family. Money raised will be spent to ensure afulfilling family life for Luke, his mum & dad, Fiona and Martin and his big brother Matthew.


This is Luke’s story so far......

On 15th July 2010, aged 7 monthsold, Luke was diagnosed with a visual pathway glioma (a brain tumour on hisoptic nerve). What was to follow was every parent’s nightmare as Luke wasadmitted to Newcastle General Hospital.

Since then Luke has endured months spent inhospital, countless operations and procedures; not to mention ongoing cycles ofchemotherapy. At approximately 18 months old, Luke lost his eye sight. Ithappened very quickly and left Luke with nothing - no light/dark perception.This was devastating.

Many different treatments have been tried overthe years in an attempt to find one that would work and would not make himpermanently sick. Unfortunately when they found one that worked it had adverseeffects on his hearing and had to be stopped. This year, 2014, has been aparticularly tough one. Luke has spent more time in hospital and undergone somevery risky operations including one at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital inLiverpool. Since January of this year Luke hasn’t walked.
Luke's condition is anything but stable; butstill he amazes us all with his ability to smile, even when he is suffering andin pain.
Luke is our little localhero. He is a remarkable little boy with an amazing family. If you are able tohelp raise much needed funds and or awareness of our group, please contact thegroup via email lukeslifelonglabour@gmail.com or via the facebook page Luke’s Life Long Labour.
Thank you.
