  • Just caught your story on Twitter this morning but will be thinking of your family today. Sending lots of love and prayers your way!

  • Dear Will, Maureen, and Liam,

    I am so touched by your strength and your positive spirit throughout your journey. Maureen, you are so upbeat and always make me laugh when waiting for the kids at school. I know your humor and love are surrounding Liam today and always. We just wanted to let you know we are thinking of all of you right now and are keeping you in our prayers.

    Tell Liam “hello” from Max and Mia!! He is such a sweet happy boy! Max loved his birthday party so much, he wanted his dad to have a big inflatable chair for his birthday just like Liam!!

    With love,
    Bryan, Cari, Max and Mia Pyka

  • Hi,

    I am a distant friend of a friend to your sister. Was so saddened to hear about what you are going through. I have not prayed in a long time but I have been praying for you this last two days. What amazing parents you are and what a beautiful boy.

    Love, thoughts and prayers from the southern hemisphere.


  • Thanks for the write-up. My spouse and i have usually seen that a lot of people are desperate to lose weight simply because they wish to show up slim in addition to looking attractive. However, they do not always realize that there are more benefits for losing weight additionally. Doctors claim that obese people have problems with a variety of health conditions that can be perfectely attributed to their particular excess weight. The great news is that people who are overweight along with suffering from a variety of diseases can reduce the severity of their particular illnesses by losing weight. You possibly can see a gradual but marked improvement with health whenever even a moderate amount of weight-loss is obtained.

  • Hi Liam, Will & Maureen,

    I have never stopped praying or thinking of all of you. My computer witn Kaput and it has been a long time since I’ve checked to see how you’re doing Liam. I asked Sarah (your Aunt Susan’s college friend) how you were doing. So I thought I’d check in on you and am thrilled to read all the good news. May you continue to get stronger and stronger every single day. May 2012 bring you
    continued health and much, much, much deserved
    peace, contentment and happiness for you, your Mommy and Daddy.

    God Bless,

    Donna Dvornik

  • Jen & Brian Healy

    You don’t know us, but I heard your interview on the Irish Hour and wanted to help out. I was listening with our 22-month-old son, Eamon, which made it all the more difficult to imagine being in your family’s shoes. I was so glad to hear Liam has been declared cancer-free and wish you the best with the fundraiser!

  • Pete Streff and Fam

    The benefit in October is on the calendar – you all are still in our thoughts and prayers.

    Liam, Will, & Maureen,
    My sincerest apologies that this message has taken so long to write. After reading all the notes and history and roller coaster ride that you all have been on since January, my heart truly goes out to each of you for what you are all going through. The light at the end of the tunnle though is that I truly know and believe that you will get through this with shining colors!!
    Liam, if you are half the fighter your father was back in his college years; I know that you have many years ahead of you to live life to the fullest. Keep up the fight and keep smiling, the ladies love it!
    You will be in my prayers always. In the meantime, just let me know if you need anything at all.

  • Dear Maureen and Will,
    updates are wonderful, but not something for
    you to even put on your list of things to do
    …we who love all three of you pray each day
    whether we know the exact measure of your days
    or not…use any little time you have to rest,
    be still, hold hands, and know…” It is spring,and there is the mystery and the smile
    of it…so touch or be touched by this time
    of grace,of warmth,of light unfolding to a new
    beginning a fresh budding…a spring within,
    as well as around you…winter will soon be
    over so spend all your time reaching together
    for the lines of spring that are sketched out
    before you…” (in these next 6 months)
    love Nancy and Bob p.s. Liam looks beautiful

  • So glad you are all doing well!! As Liam is getting older and as his hair is growing back he is really looking a lot like uncle Mike!!

    much love xoxo
    Katie and Josh Smith 🙂

    That is the best news I had ever heard. I have been keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. It is just amazing how well he has done with all he had to go through. Being a former transplant nurse it always amazed me the
    strength people have . Liam is a true hero. I hope all of you continue to be blessed with Health, Love, and Happiness. Thank you for the update.

  • Marjorie Nester

    Maureen—I can’t recall if I ever responded to you on this site. Is Liam your grandchild? Did you remember that I had a grandchild , Holli, that developed neuroblastoma at age 3 1/2. She also was stage 4, At Children’s hospital in Chicago she received chemo, surgery, radiation, stem cell transplant. She is now 10 and doing very well. She has some hearing loss secondary to the drugs, and she has some learning disabilities. But she is managing quite well despite these things She is a happy healthy girl.We are so thankful!!
    sorry if this is a repeat story for you.

    I enjoyed reading about Liam.. He is a sweet little boy. I will keep you and him in my prayers.


  • Everytime I see that video it brings a tear to my eye…he really is the best boy!!

    I think 2011 is going to be a great year for the Kelly Family!!

    Just to let you know I’m thinking of all of you!

  • Marilyn Thwaites

    Hi Liam,Will and Maureen great to hear things are going ok. Susan keeps us up to date with news of Liam.

    Sounds like Liam has been such a good kid that Santa is sure to find him.
    Hope that Uncle Harry has managed to get on the “good kids list”

    Have a wonderful Christmas.
    We are thinking of you.

    From Marilyn, Warren and all your Australian extended family

  • Hi Will & Maureen,

    My daughter Sarah was given this web address
    to the “North Pole.” You can fill out information on Liam, include photos so Liam can see that Santa really does know who he is.
    Then access the site and wella Liam can hear Santa talk to him from the web. My little grandson was awestruck when he saw his photos in Santa’s book and knew his name:) So I thought you, and Maureen would get just as much of a kick out of this as I did when I watched it.

    I’m always keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.


    Warmest Regards,

    Donna Dvornik

  • Hey Buddy,

  • Hi Liam, Will and Maureen,

    Just checking in and happy to read Liam’s getting stronger. Liam, I loved your T Rex costume. I thought you were really clever in deciding to wear three costumes all at once; you kept people guessing!

    Liam here’s a T Rex Joke for you:

    What do you call a dinosaur that wrecks everything in it’s path?


    You are all in my thoughts and prayers.



  • Maureen, Will,and Liam,
    Just wanted to let you know we are still thinking of you and praying for you. Hopefully we can plan some playdates when you get out. Shelly, Genna, and Maddy

  • Hi guys! Just thought I would drop by and say a little “hello” since I miss you all like crazy. We have been thinking and praying for Liam and your family as hard as we can. We can’t wait for you to bust out of isolation and get home!! Evan has been talking about Liam and wondering when he can play with his best buddy. He is also very excited for Liam to turn 3, just like him…it’s very important you know!!!

    Well, I hope things are getting better over there and just know you are always on our minds. The whole Snyder clan is so thankful to have you in our lives…Happy Thanksgiving dear friends!!!


  • Hi Maureen, Will and Liam!
    Just to let you know- the pond is closed for the winter, but Liam can always stop inside to feed the fish– they have been moved to the indoor tank for the winter:) Then he can say hello to tootsie the turtle and feed him too!
    Hope you’re doing well– we are thinking of you all!
