About Victoria Lunn
On December 7th 2014 Victoria Louise Lunn lost her life after a long battle with Ovarian Cancer aged 26.
Victoria was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer at the age of 16 and successfully recovered from this. Sadly in 2012 aged just 24 she was further diagnosed with Stage 4 Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer and was treated by the St James' Hospital, Leeds. She was a patient of Ward 94, the Young Person's Unit, supported by the Teenage Cancer Trust. Vicky received a lot of treatment and support from the hospital and the Teenage Cancer Trust but the disease was too far advanced and she died 2 years after diagnosis. During that time she managed to keep working full time and looked after her horse, Archie, until 5 months before her death. Victoria was booked onto the September 2014 Active Rider camp and cancelled as she was too poorly. She attended camps in 2010 and 2011.
The Teenage Cancer Trust has been fantastic in supporting Victoria and her family. Victoria's family hope that every young person who faces Cancer has access to the great treatment and staff just as Victoria did.
Victoria’s family will be forever grateful to the Teenage Cancer Trust.Close.
