I'm tough! I can do it on my own!

Liam, in remission

Hi, my name is Liam, I am 6 years old and have had an atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (TT/RA) removed.

Liam, a 6-year-old boy, has a busy medical history. Shortly after his brain tumor was diagnosed, it was resected. Three intensive rounds of chemotherapy, three bone marrow transplants and two intensive care stays later, he was declared in remission in September 2020, but relapsed the following May. His active treatments ended in November 2022.

During the three years of treatment, Liam did not attend school. He had to relearn to speak, walk and swallow. He now suffers from Posterior Fossa Syndrome, an after-effect of brain surgery. As a result of the surgery and cancer treatments and their adverse effects, Liam has delays in hearing, speech, motor skills, vision, information processing speed and comprehension. He also has challenges managing his emotions and certain behaviors.

Now that Liam has completed his treatments and is no longer taking medication, he's regaining his energy and feels free to experience things like other children his age. Endearing, smiling and a go-getter, he plays baseball, swims, dreams of becoming a race car driver and loves chocolate chips more than anything!

CHEO's dedicated team is simply amazing!
