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 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 on our return home.  Somewhere along the line it changed to a place where I could leave Liam a lasting record of this challenging journey he has been on.  My hope is that he will come back to it in years to come and be amazed at what he endured and survived.  Who knows maybe he will even show it to his kids!  I also have a written record of Matts journey from diagnosis to his passing which I will add together with this and keep it for both the children in the future.

I am not sure how many people are still reading this but to those of you who are – thank you so much for the support over the last 300 days (hard to believe we are nearly at a year) I could not have gotten through this without you.  We have had some tough times but have come out the other side and every day that goes by the better things look.

I will update as soon as we get the results from the scan, and will then sign off.  You can however still follow our progress with the funrazor at the new blog –

Thats all for now
