Most of you know Liam's story, but for those who don't here we go. At months old Liam was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma Bone Cancer, which is one of the rarest forms of bone cancer, especially for his age. He went through 22 rounds of chemo which took 11 months. Liam was cleared and Cancer free as of February 2017. We followed up with his oncologist for a 3 month appointment which consisted of an MRI and CT scan that he needed to be sedated for. The scans came back showing a few small spots in his lung and an area in his left arm measuring 1.79cm in length and .79cm in width, which you can imagine is large for a 22 month olds arm. We then had a PET scan done to determine if the spots in his lung were cancerous or not, they decided the spots were too small to tell anything right now. Today on June 13th 2017, he is having a biopsy done on his arm to determine if it is a tumor or something like a lymph node. At the end of Liam's last chemo cycle we met with the oncologist and she told us, if Liam's cancer comes back, it will likely be more aggressive, and he may not react to the chemo and it could do more harm than good. So we as mom and dad are in a rough spot. If this is cancer, we have discussed taking Liam to a couple of different children's hospitals around the US, inclundimg Houston, Cincinnati, and Philadelphia. These places specialize not only in his cancer, but with patients that have relapsed with his cancer. We are looking at facing a huge financial burden if we decide to do this. We will have to move to whatever city that has the hospital of our choosing, and, Liam will no longer have medical insurance. We thank you all so mich for your love and prayers!! Please continue to keep our family in your prayers as we continue on this very scary journey. #teamliam

As of yesterday, August 25th 2017, we have made the hardest decision that no parent should ever have to make. Liam is not responding to any treatment he has been given. His tumors are all growing, he is not eligible for a lung transplant because he has a tumor in each lung. With active cancer cells, he will not be eligible to get on the transplant list. We were told he will not be cured. If we were to try a Clinical Trial, it would just be prolonging his life, and will have all the side effects of chemo. That's no way to live, in pain and suffering. So, we have made the choice to stop all treatments and let him enjoy life. They say he has roughly 6 months left. This is the most devastating news we have ever heard. So, we are here again. Reaching out to friends and family. Funerals are very expensive, and we want to be able to give Liam a beautiful service. We appreciate everyone's love and support so far along this journey, but now we need it more than ever before. #teamliam #fighttilyoucantfightanymore

An update on our guy..

Liam's biopsy results came back. We found out Friday June 16th, our baby relapsed and was again diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. This time the cancer is in a tumor in his forearm, and unfortunately in his lung as well. His oncologist told us honestly and emotionally everything ​we didn't want to hear and could never imagine hearing. She told us relapsed Ewing's patients in general are very hard to cure, but even more so when the cancer in in their lungs. We are devastated, heart broken, and lost. We ask please that no one asks any other questions, as we are still unsure of what the plan is. We appreciate all of the thoughts, prayers, love, and support. Some have asked if we are okay. Honestly, no. We aren't, how does someone deal with hearing that news? People have asked if we need anything. We really don't know what we need or want other than for our friends and family to be there to catch us when we fall. Thank you all for any donations and shares. You mean more than you know to our family. Our goal as of now is to spend every waking moment with Liam, and take him to do and see everything we can possibly afford to do. We are fighting this til we can't fight anymore. #teamliam
