In June of 2014, then twelve-year-old Liam Canard, of Raleigh, N.C., was diagnosed with Stage IIIB Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s immune system. Treatments for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma patients are challenging, and for the better part of a year, Liam has undergone rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, leaving him immunocompromised and unable to attend school during the fall semester in 2014. Liam will be turning fourteen in August of this year and his battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma continues. In May we learned that the first round of chemotherapy and radiation may not have cleared all of the cancer in Liam's lymphatic system. The next round of treatment for Liam will put him in the hospital for one week during each of his three week chemotherapy cycles. Following completion of chemotherapy, Liam will have to undergo a Stem Cell Transplant, which will put him in the hospital for twenty five days. This aggressive treatment protocol will prevent Liam from starting his Freshman year of High School and creates new financial challenges for our family. We live in a loving community that wants to help. Many family friends and local community members encouraged us to create this page so they could help Liam and our family with medical and other associated expenses for Liam's continued treatment. Thanks to all who have helped. You can learn more about Liam, his journey, spirit and strength of character by reading the following article published in the UNC Health Care and School of Medicine Newsroom:  https://news.unchealthcare.org/news/2015/may/a-complete-team
