Since then Liam has remained hospitalized in the Pediatric Unit at UVA and received his first round of Chemo on Monday August 27, 2018 to fight this terrible disease.
No parent should ever have to hear the words "Your child has cancer."
They were totally blindsided by this, the ground has fallen out from beneath their feet and they are still having great difficulty dealing with all of this. They are asking for privacy and time to process all of this.
I am Liam's Great-Aunt, Kim Atkins who is starting this page on behalf of Eliza and Phillip Richards.
As many of you may know Liam's Grandfather, Briant Atkins and his Great-Grandfather Dickie Atkins have been a huge part of Fire and Rescue for many years helping the community in any way they could. Now we are asking for a little help back to support our family during this terrible time. Even if you can't donate, please share this post and keep Liam in your prayers during this terrible time.
