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.
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
