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 28

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 8:17 pm on Saturday, May 17, 2008

A very quiet couple of days for us.  Liam has been happy enough at school and not doing himself too many injuries.  He lost another tooth about 5.31am yesterday and of course had to come running in and wake me up to show me.  It was one of the ones on the side where the tumour […]

Day 26

Nothing to report today – Liam still running around like a lunatic, he tells me he got 2nd in his class for the practice of the cross country they did yesterday, if that is right he is not doing too bad at all considering his sinus is totally blocked.  Must get that athletic build and […]

Day 24

Liam got a special surprise today, Coco our new puppy arrived from Auckland.  She is absolutely beautiful, and Liam and Ashleigh just love her.  She is a Lowchen and is about 10 inches high.  She is a little bit timid at the moment while she gets used to her new home, but she is gorgeous […]

Day 23

Hi everyone, not too much to report today but thought I would ‘blog’ (am even getting into the lingo!) anyway.  I wanted to reiterate my thanks to all those who helped make the day on Saturday such a success.  We had so many helpers – Carol, Tracey and Jax using their charm to sell sausages, kebabs, […]

Bowman Todd Memorial Rugby Match

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 1:15 pm on Sunday, May 11, 2008

Result – Police 27, Waikanae 26  What a fantastic day!!  The Kapiti Coast turned on great weather for us, the sun was shining and there was very little wind. We had a huge turn out and as you can tell by the scoreline the game was very well matched.  It will be good to see […]

Day 20 – Surgeons visit

Filed under: 1 — Rebecca at 5:29 pm on Friday, May 9, 2008

We went to meet the surgeon today – Dr Charles Davis who was very pleasant.  Unfortunately what he had to tell us was not so pleasant!  Liam will undergo surgery on May the 28th.  That is 2 and a half weeks away because they have a backlog of surgeries from the Junior Doctors strike. They […]

Hi all, Well it certainly appears that the article has done the rounds of  papers of the country.  It is good that the local ones have given lots of coverage for the fundraiser so hopefully we get a good turnout, and the weather looks pretty promising.  I was interviewed today by Classic Hits radio regarding […]

For those of you that haven’t seen the article today here is the link on the stuff website: He has starred in the Dominion Post and the Christchurch Press as well.  Great articles, I am very impressed with how they have been written – just not too impressed about how big my nose looks! […]

Day 17

What a beautiful day it is on the sunny Kapiti Coast today, you could almost be forgiven for thinking it was summer (apart from the fact it is freezing), lets hope for good weather like this for the rugby match on Saturday.   Liam had a good day at school yesterday, has just slotted back in no […]

Have just had a phone call from Dr Rob Corbett who is the paediatric oncologist we were seeing in Christchurch.  The preliminary results from Australia have come back showing the tumour as being what is known as a myoepithelioma.  This means that the tumour has originated from the salivary glands.  It is extremely rare in […]
