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."

We had an incredibly busy weekend, heading into the Sound of Music at the Opera House on Friday night to start things off.  The seven of us had front row seats so we had an unobstructed view for the entire performance.  One of the highlights for the kids was when Captain Von Trapp was dancing […]

The week had been pretty uneventful until this evening.  Liam and Ashleigh were playing with two friends on the trampoline while their Mum and I were having a nice quiet cup of tea inside.  Next thing we heard an absolute blood curling scream coming from, you guessed it Liam.  You know one of those screams […]

Here is a picture of Liam and the other mascots at the Phoenix soccer game in Wellington last night.  Riley the little dot at the front of the picture is wearing his beads of courage.  Can you believe that he is only 4 years old and has 800 beads, what an amazing kid.  The evening […]

Well I think that the weather gods are messing with our heads at the moment.  We go from brilliantly sunny beach days like yesterday to overcast miserably cold days like today.  No wonder everyone keeps getting sick!  I have Ashleigh Jane home with a hacking cough and a bit of a fever today.  She is tucked […]
