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 108

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 7:13 pm on Friday, August 8, 2008

Not one to sit on my laurels I contacted the authors of the article that I was given to read regarding myoepithilial carcinomas.  It didn’t phase me one bit that they were Doctors working at a hospital attached to Harvard Universtiy!  I was amazed when they got back to me within a few hours.  They gave me a couple of names of a paediatric oncologist and an adult oncologist who has some experience in successfully treating these types of tumours.  I have passed these onto our oncologist who is going to get in contact with them.  It is great to have someone who can perhaps make some decisions or at least recommendations for us instead of us having to make them.

I have spent the afternoon making balloon animals for Liam and Ashleigh (woman of many talents) – well actually I made Ashleigh a swan and she decided it looked like a dog poo, so maybe I’m not as good as I thought!

Liam is doing well, although the tube in his tearduct seems to be annoying him so we may need to get that looked at next week, but other than that he is doing great and looking great.

Thats all from us for now.

Take care and thanks for all the messages and support!

Since you’re doing all the research, I suggest you ask for a cut of David Hamilton’s pay packet ;o) Awesome news!
