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 attended the long awaited Genetics appointment on Thursday at Kenepuru Hospital.  I haven’t written before now as I thought I would give myself time to calm down.  Unfortunately 3 days hasn’t done it, I am still angry.  The professor that we saw was very nice and had obviously done a fair bit of research into […]

I have good news to report!  Liams surgery went really well,  after the initial hiccup of getting his portacath accessed.  He had decided to go with the needle this time instead of the gas as it distresses him so much.  Unfortunately he had worked himself up into such a state that he had convinced himself […]
