Love & Happiness for Liam Now

UPDATE 12 Sep: Today we will suspend this Love and Happiness for Liam campaign so Liam's parents can create their own GoFundMe campaign for very specific medical needs for Liam.

Liam's vacation was a huge success and raised over $5,000 in cash and close to $50,000 in donated goods & services in less than 25 days. Hundreds of people associated with wonderful organizations throughout Southern California joined us to ensure that Liam and his family had an unbelievable jaw-dropping fun-filled 10 days of incredibleness!

Besides the money that was raised, Liam's story was covered nationally by People, MTV, NY Daily News, and many more outlets, raising awareness of Liam's rare childhood cancer.

The mission is not over - money is still needed to care for this child's upcoming medical and living expenses.

Desert Sun Article - Sunday August 24th

"Liam Myrick, a 5-year-old boy from a small Missouri town who is fighting a rare cancer, has always wanted to see the ocean. Now his wish is coming true, thanks to the help of a group of Coachella Valley residents and businesses.
"Liam was diagnosed at age 3 with Stage 4 neuroblastoma, a cancer that attacks nerve cells. Liam's life story, well-documented on Facebook, touched Palm Springs philanthropist Rick Pantele, himself a three-time cancer survivor." Read more: Desert Sun Palm Springs (Aug 24)

Liam and family had an amazing evening last night at the game. When we arrived we got to go out on the field and meet the players. Each player shook the kids hands and took a picture with the whole family. Then we got to hang out with Jason Motte's wife for awhile.

It was neat to see how down to earth she is as well as Jason. Liam started getting hot so we took him to the a/c to cool down and have a hotdog. Then it was time to hit the field. Liam gave us a little scare but the emt was right there to help and monitor him.

All in all it was a fabulous night for the family and Liam. We want to say thank-you to Niki and the whole Springfield Cardinals organization for making this night possible.

To the coach: Liam is already asking when he can come back to take you up on your offer
Liam throws the first pitch at ballgame!

Buddies!

Hello! Yes, Neuroblastoma has caused a tumor in Liams belly. His sister, Natalie, is a survivor of a brain cancer which may be what that comment is referring to. Also, Neuroblastoma affects the neurological system.

Why does it mention brain cancer? "The love keeping activities constant and fun, and they try to remain as normal as a family can be when your child or brother has a rare brain cancer." I thought Neuroblastoma was a tumor in the abdomen. Excuse me if I am wrong.
