About Unlock a Life for Lockey
Unlock a Life for Lockey was set up in January 2014 by the family and friends of seven-year-old Laughlin Whiteley, known
When he was just four years old, Laughlin successfully fought a brain tumour.
Three years later he was diagnosed with AML leukaemia and received a stem cell transplant.
Laughlin relapsed in August 2014 and sadly, despite an incredibly brave battle, passed away on October 11th, 2014.
While receiving his own treatment, Laughlin came up with the idea of creating special boxes full of fun activities and craft

Team Laughlin vowed to carry on with the charity he inspired and continue to support the families of children with cancer
