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."

Bowman Todd Memorial Rugby Match

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 1:15 pm on Sunday, May 11, 2008

Result – Police 27, Waikanae 26

 What a fantastic day!!  The Kapiti Coast turned on great weather for us, the sun was shining and there was very little wind.

We had a huge turn out and as you can tell by the scoreline the game was very well matched.  It will be good to see the Police name added to the back of the trophy.  Ty and his team of helpers (Ozzie, Sean, Quiney and Stu) out did themselves, we had a coffee machine, sausages, kebabs etc all in a huge marquee, a bouncy castle which kept the kids occupied for hours on end and at half time there was an attack display from two operational Police dogs. 

After the rugby finished and we got through prize giving we all headed down to Murphys Law at the Waikanae Pub for a bit of a knees up.  The proceeds from the drinks were also given to the fundraising and it looks as though we may have raised as much as $5,000 this year.

Liam had a great day, I hardly saw him between him and Zac Bowman being the ball boys and running up the hills to climb the trees. 

A fabulous day was had by all, and a very entertaining evening which stretched into the wee small hours for some of us.  I will post some photos soon.  Thanks to all who attended or sent donations and to all those who donated goods or lent a hand.

Yay $5000 thats great. I didn’t think it could get any better than last year, but I was wrong. It certainly was great the see the whole community come and support the TODD and BOWMAN families, The Mary Potter Hospice and the Ronald McDonald House. Take care. xxx

Hi guys
Sounds like the rugby memorial match was awesome. We will be leaving Wales in a couple of days to head up to England to meet more relatives! We’ll then be going to London, like you did Liam, to see some of the sights. We are thinking about you heaps and we’ll be back before the surgery, so Amy can show you all her photos and you can compare notes.
Love to you all
The Mcphails
