My Story

Liam was an exceptionally gifted athlete, dribbled a ball at 18 months, hit jump shots at two, smashed pitched balls at 3. He was Zorro, a Musketeer, a sword fighter. He was passionate about playing baseball, hockey, rollerblading, bike riding, doughnuts and mocha. He showed his enthusiasm for life and fun with his infectious smile and jubilant laugh. He took delight in camping and climbing rocks. He would spend hours looking for the right sticks to use as guns, swords or spears. When he had a goal, he was unyielding in his determination to achieve it. He was happiest when he had a large area in which to run, jump and practice stuntman falls. Liam died after a courageous fight against a brain tumor called a pontine brain stem glioma. Liam leaves a legacy of hope for other children. His tumor tissue was donated to a national tissue bank for research.
