Lulu Blundell – an Inspirational Young Woman

January 31, 2024

Lulu Blundell was only 19 when she died on New Years day 2023 having been diagnosed with cancer when she was 15. Towards the end of last year her father, Stephen, contacted Legs4Africa to offer us the donation of three of her prosthetic legs, and he shared with us this inspiring video featuring his much loved daughter. Although she was so young when she died, Lulu managed to pack an enormous amount into her short life as is evident from the video in which her words are read by her mother. Lulu’s legs will go to one of our rehabilitation partners in sub-Saharan Africa where they will enable others living with limb difference to live their lives to the full which Lulu would no doubt be very pleased about.

About the author

Name: Tom Williams

My passion? Ensuring no prosthetic leg goes unused. I’m dedicated to collecting, refurbishing, and sending these vital pieces of technology to our partners in Africa, where they make a world of difference. When I’m not immersed in this mission at STAND, I’m often found outdoors, embracing nature. I love long walks in any season, camping under the stars, and enjoying the serenity of the great outdoors. My evenings often involve a unique hobby – maintaining and repairing old pinball machines. This blend of precision and nostalgia keeps me engaged and always learning. This fusion of dedication to my work and my love for nature and tinkering drives me every day, both at STAND and beyond.
