When Liam was diagnosed with cancer, Macmillan helped him and his family through the toughest Christmases of their lives.
The Kirk family wanted to share their brilliant Christmas news with you. Their son Liam is now free from cancer treatment for the first Christmas since 2013!
When we met Liam, it was hard to believe he was the same poorly and frightened child who in 2013 could barely get out of bed to celebrate his favourite day of the year.
That was their first Christmas with cancer. It was a struggle. Liam couldn’t resist waking up super-early to see what he’d been left under the tree. But it wasn’t long before he started to feel horribly ill and tired. Liam's parents tried to keep his festive spirits up but there was no denying how exhausted he was. It broke their hearts.
They had planned to spend the whole festive season together – to see in the New Year together. But Liam was too poorly and by New Year’s Eve he was back in hospital and they were devastated.
Through that first Christmas, and every dark and difficult moment since, their Macmillan nurse Helen was by their side. Will you make sure families don’t have to face cancer alone this Christmas, by donating today?
