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."

Day 43

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 4:42 pm on Sunday, June 1, 2008

Liam has had a really good day today, he has been busy beating me at a game he was given by his cousin Jack called Mancala.  There is a bit of strategy involved and I’ll put him beating me down to me being preoccupied! 

Liam’s friend Keenan came to visit this morning which cheered him up no end. The two of them sat playing with the lego for about an hour and discussing loonie tunes cartoons.  We were also visited by Sally from the Child Cancer Foundation this afternoon and she delivered a bag of goodies including a nice pink panther that only the special cancer kids get!  There are lots of activities coming up so hopefully Liam is well enough to participate in them.

Until tomorrow

Don’t worry, Jack kicks my butt at Mancala too!

So glad you’re feeling better, Liam, we’ll come out and visit you again and you can play Jack for the supreme title!

There’s a theme emerging here … Emmie is 8 and she kicks my butt every time we play Mancala!! Glad to hear you’re doing so well Liam – you’ll be tearing around at home again before you know it. Keep up the good work!
