In May of 2006 we lost Matt, Liam's Dad after a courageous battle with a brain tumour, he was 34 years old. In April of 2008 we got the devastating news that 7 year old Liam had an extremely rare form of cancer in his sinus cavity. This blog is where we can update you on Liam's progess with his brave battle. "If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them."

The story so far

On Wednesday the 16th April 2008, we got the devastating news that Liam is suffering from an aggressive malignant tumour located in his sinus cavity.  The tumour is large and very complicated.  It is a huge blow after losing his Dad Matt to a brain tumour two years ago next month.  Liam is in no pain or discomfort and is in good spirits.  We are flying to Christchurch tomorrow to undergo further tests and receive his first round of chemotherapy, once we get there and settled in I will write more.

 Love to all
