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."

Hi guys, just a short note to say ‘chins up guys’ coz we’re all thinking of you here at Kapiti Youth Aid. Also you MUST go to the Antarctic Centre to perk up your stay down there – Al and I have just returned from a B/Light trip there and it was awesome. In fact BL might come to the party on that one for you all – watch this space. xxx Linda,Al and Swannie

Hi All!!
Just want to say how much we are loving the opportunity to see Liam and be here with him, Becs and Ashleigh.
Becs is a wonder woman and her strength just blows me away!!!
Steve is an incredible guy and able to give such great stability and strength into what is a situation so inconceivable … Olivia, Jess and Amelia are a delight to be around as well!!
We just love this new evolving family and feel privileged to be around to see them all!

Hey that’s fantastic news! – and thanks for the wonderful feedback Becs. So reassuring to be able to accompany you all this way. Great to see
you smiling back at us Liam!! You are doing so well.
Ps – I met up with Ashleigh not long after they arrived in Welly and she didn’t mention missing you yet Becs! Good to know you might be back here soon though. All fingers crossed.
