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 323 – Thursday 5th March 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 12:12 pm on Thursday, March 5, 2009

I am pleased to say that this will be my last post.  I have had a phone call today from Dr Christian Kratz who advises that there was absolutely no sign of any residual tumour on Liams latest CT scan.  This is the best possible outcome that I could possibly have wished for. I am […]

Day 318 – Saturday 28th February 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 7:18 am on Saturday, February 28, 2009

I have decided to add another post today as I think the events of yesterday warrant it. A wee while ago I sent an application in on Liams behalf to the Make a Wish Foundation.  His wish was for a trampoline.  Yesterday his wish was granted. We decided to surprise Liam with his wish, so […]

Day 300 – 10th February 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 7:21 pm on Tuesday, February 10, 2009

This will be my last post for a while.  I have made the decision that after Liam’s CT scan on the 1st of March I will stop updating this blog. The blog initially started as a way for me to keep everyone informed of Liams progress through his treatment, both while we were staying at CHOC, and […]

Day 290 – Saturday 31st January 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:40 pm on Saturday, January 31, 2009

We got back from our holiday in Auckland late this evening.  We had a fantastic time, but as always it is nice to be home in our own beds. We decided that there are some pluses to having cancer as if it wasn’t for Liam and this blog we wouldn’t have been the recipients of Jane […]

Day 279 – 20th January 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:27 pm on Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Liam, Ashleigh and I went into Wellington Hospital for bloods to be taken today.  He was a very brave little soldier, and only had a very small panic attack just before the needle went in, but allowed them to take three vials of blood.  These are being sent to Australia to identify whether or not he […]

Day 268 – 9th January 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 3:02 pm on Friday, January 9, 2009

So far so good, 2009 has started off well.  I have received a phone call from Dr Kratz who has advised that he has located a lab in Australia who will undertake the genetic testing for Liam and find out if there is a family connection between the cancers and whether further tests are required on […]

Day 259 – 1st January 2009

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 3:56 pm on Thursday, January 1, 2009

Well talk about seeing in 2009 in style.  We had Jaspers family up for a BBQ on a beautiful Kapiti Coast day.  We dragged out the singstar 80’s and after a few drinks I thought I was singing remarkably well, and no girls it doesn’t have the Gambler on it, however we did do a […]

Day 251 – 24th December 2008

Christmas Eve has brought a new little baby into the world.  Some very close friends of mine welcomed their beautiful new daughter Isobella this morning at about 7am.  Her big sister had been dropped off at my place shortly after 5am, and we took a wee trip down to the local hospital early this morning […]

Day 244 – 17th December 2008

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 10:58 am on Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Today would have been Matt’s 37th birthday.  As my good friend Mel has said she always remembers having a conversation with Matt moaning about getting older and he told her that every birthday he reached was a victory and a blessing.  I know he had 34 wonderful years, but he should have been around to celebrate many more and […]

Day 239 – Friday 12th December 2008

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 2:59 pm on Friday, December 12, 2008

The week has gone by quickly, not too much happening, but Liam and I went to see Charles Davis (surgeon extraordinaire)  today over in Lower Hutt.  He is still pleased with Liam’s progress but thinks there may be a slight infection in the eye which explains the “gunk”.  Certainly nothing to be concerned about, and I just need to make […]
