Story

Liam is only 5yrs old & at the start of May 2018, the family had the devastating news that their beautiful son has an incurable and inoperable brain tumour, giving him up to a year to live. DIPG is very rare & just one child a year would develop this terrible disease & unfortunately, there is currently no cure.

DIPG grows in the area of the brain that controls sleep, respiration, swallowing, bladder control, hearing, taste, eye movement, facial expressions, facial sensation, and posture. Growing in this area makes surgery to remove the cancerous tumour impossible. However tests and trials are being carried out in a handful of places around the world to work towards a cure, or extend the length of the prognosis past a year. This cancer usually only affects children under the age of 10.

I’ve assembled a group of likeminded Bikers, that will be riding from Whitehaven to Sunderland, crossing the lake district & Pennines, on the 14th July.
I know this appears crazy on the face of it, but in compassion to the struggles that poor Liam & his family are to endure over the coming year, this will be easy!

I have set up this Just Giving page to help Liam and his family raise funds for specialised trials and treatment in hope that something can be done.Fundraising is the only chance and we have to try to make this happen as a community!

Currently the only treatment is radiotherapy within the NHS in the United Kingdom, this only shrinks the size of the tumour before it comes back again, only with radiotherapy will Liam live for up to a year. Hopefully the money raised will allow Liam to have a dream holiday, see his favourite football team, allow him to visit his favourite places and make him live the best life he can with the help of his friends & family.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I appreciate every donation whether big or small! Every little counts, let’s do what we can and come together for this brave little boy!
