Liam achieved remission within a month
Liam went home a week after being admitted and he had achieved remission within a month. But it had come at a cost. His appearance had changed so quickly with the chemotherapy drugs he was taking. He gained weight to the extent that he could not even pick himself off the floor and his hair fell out.
He struggled with the changes of his body but never let it bother him. It was hard to believe that we would see the same little boy come out the other end, but we did.
In the following months, Liam continued his treatment, half the time at the local hospital and the remainder in Birmingham. There were endless needles and medicines which continued throughout his treatment. He endured many hospital stays and illnesses. He was always very brave and never let it get him down.
164 weeks of treatment seemed like a lifetime but we can assure you that the time passed very quickly.
