Liem was diagnosed when he was only 2 and a half years old. His little sister was 5 months old. He's now four and still has two years of treatment ahead of him, so as you can imagine it's just normal for him. The port he has in his chest is no different than his belly button to him (except he gets frequent ouchies there). We have very frequent hospital stays, blood tests every week, he's had surgery on his sinuses to help reduce the frequency of infections, he catches every little cold, but we deal, and we move forward.
Liem's got his age on his side, not only being diagnosed at age two increases his survival rate, but also he doesn't know he has cancer. And I'm so thankful for that. I know one day he'll have questions.
Liem is a strong, energetic little guy. He loves to play games on the computer and Thomas the Tank Engine.
I cherish and thank God for every day we have with our very special
