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 73 – Meet the All Blacks

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 5:19 pm on Friday, July 4, 2008

We decided to call in the big guns to cheer us up today!  Well actually the Child Cancer Foundation rang last night and told us that the All Blacks were coming to meet us at the childrens ward at Wellington Hospital (not just us but you get the idea!).  We decided that even though the truckies were blocking the roads and causing chaos it was a chance we couldn’t really miss.  So we rocked on in and met a few of them:


Conrad Smith (Liam very impressed with meeting him)


Adam Thomson and Andrew Ellis (Mummy very impressed with meeting Mr Ellis!)


Anthony Boric                                                        


John Afoa and Brad Thorn   – These guys are huge!


Stephen Donald


Kevin O’Neill

Was a good day, and nice to see the smile on Liam’s face.  We are doing alright after Tuesdays results have sunk in, we have booked our trip to Picton, so it will be great to see everyone down that way.  We have a few things planned for the holidays, including me trying to squeeze in a bit of study, so should be able to keep ourselves occupied. 

Take care
