Welcome to my page!
I am taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer. Along with a few friends and family members we are going to walk, run and hike to raise money for this amazing foundation.
As most of you know Liam was accepted to Make-A-Wish on his 7th birthday this year! Please walk with us, donate if you can and share please!
Liam was diagnosed in utero with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele and Hydrocephalus but he was born a fighter. He had his first surgery at less than 24 hours old and barely 4 pounds to close his back where his spine and nerves were exposed. At 4 weeks old is when Liam's real battle with Hydrocephalus started and had his first brain surgery to have a shunt placed to drain the dangerous amount of excess fluid built up around his brain. Unfortunately the shunt malfunctioned and he found himself back for brain surgery just two weeks later again followed by 4 more before 10 months of age. He has fought for his life multiple times, yet comes out of surgery, we have lost count now but close to 20, everytime with his big smiles and belly laughs.
Make-A-Wish® Trailblaze for Wishes is a 10-week virtual challenge which asks you to Hike, Walk or Run your chosen challenge distance — 50KM, 100KM or 200KM. I’m excited to be take part, get outdoors and raise much needed funds to help children with critical illnesses this summer.
Make-A-Wish wants to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, but right now, thousands of wishes are waiting due to COVID-19.
Will you support me, so that together, we can make sure that when life returns to normal, no child must wait for their already delayed wish?
