Liam is a happy, rambunctious 19 month old boy. A few months ago while playing we noticed a mass in his abdomen.His pediatrician felt the mass and agreed that it was probably nothing, but that we should get an ultrasound just incase.
The ultrasound took place on July 14 2017. Afterwards we were told they wanted additional imaging in the form of a CT scan beucase they suspected the masses may be cancer.
Following the CT scan, we were told that was not one but two masses and they were likely cancerous tumors. The following day, Liam had surgery and both tumors were removed. It was confirmed they were cancerous and we are currently waiting on pathology reports to determine which type of cancer. That will determine what type of chemotherapy Liam will need. He has a long road ahead of him and we are thankful for the large support system we have.
Unfortunately, we are not financially prepared for such a devastating diagnosis. my husband does not have paid time off, as we've just moved here after finishing my contract with the Army. It is imperative that Liam have both parents around as much as possible while undergoing treatment and recovery. We live about an hour from his treatment center so we need help with gas, food, and everyday living expenses for the next few months while we get the ball rolling.
Any amount that goes unused will be donated to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma Washington
