My Story

Liam Meyer was just 11 weeks old when he was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma on September 10th, 2016. The tumor that was found in his right eye was large, and the oncologist recommended immediate surgery to remove the eye. On September 19th, Liam's right eye was enucleated, or taken out. After a few days, his parents, Andrew and Holly, found enormous relief when they were informed that the pathology report came in and the cancer was found to be contained in the eye. It had not spread to Liam's brain or outside of the eye, which was his parent's greatest fear. Liam is now 8 months old and he is a happy, healthy little boy with a great personality. Since he was diagnosed at such a young age, he still has to go in every 3 months for exams under anesthesia, and so far the doctors have found no evidence of cancer in his left eye! Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
