A Special Dedication to the Memory of Luca Martucci


Luca Martucci at the wood and in hospital

To mark the second anniversary of the loss of their much loved 14 year old grandson Luca Martucci, grandparents Len and Jessie Potter made a special personal donation of £500 to Leukaemia Busters. Luca passed away with an incurable form of T-cell leukaemia on the 11th January 2020 following seventeen months of grueling treatment.

Len and Jessie, who will be celebrating their golden wedding anniversary later this year, want everyone to know just what a life loving and intelligent boy Luca was right up to the very end. He will be missed and loved forever by all who knew him. Len and Jessie will be dedicating their golden wedding celebrations to Luca and asking for donations to Leukaemia Busters in his memory.

We are so grateful to Len & Jessie for their very meaningful special support that will help directly fund our potentially life-saving research work.  I share with them the grief that comes from the loss of a promising young life cut short. It’s the very reason why we conduct our research work with such great earnest, in the expectation that it will one day help prevent the loss of young lives like Luca’s.
