“Hi, my name is Victoria, Luca's mummy. Forever Luca was established following the death of my son Luca on the April 14 2011, aged just three years and six months old, after a courageous 15-month battle against a highly aggressive stage 4 brain cancer called Medulloblastoma.

“Watching my little boy endure this cruelty was simply humbling as he bravely kept smiling through ninerounds of high-dose chemo followed by a peripheral blood stem cell transplant and constant procedures.

“Child Loss plunges you into darkness, destruction and into a chaos that is impossible to understand or imagine, until you've experienced it.

“After Luca's death I felt fear, guilt, anger and heart wrenching pain that almost consumed me.

“Without the counselling support I finally managed to seek (three-plus years after his death) I really don't know how i would have survived.

I have now become a qualified bereavement counsellor myself, and from this Forever Luca was born to provide much needed support for the sadly many bereaved parents who are thrust into a world they don't choose or want.”
