Liam Parsons is a 12 year old boy who races motocross. He also has leukemia. Four years ago, while being treated at SickKids in Toronto Canada, Liam began to raise money for another condition treated at SickKids — hydrocephalus. As a kid that had experienced childhood disease and one who appreciated the children’s hospital that cared for him, Liam became a fundraiser for MX for Children to benefit hydrocephalus research at SickKids. Over two years, he raised more than $1000 for hydrocephalus research at SickKids. We are sad to learn that after being in remission for a few years, Liam’s cancer is back. Rex Backman, the MX for Children volunteer who ran many of our Toronto events, wrote the following story on Vital MX to tell Liam’s story. We are supporting a Go Fund Me campaign in support of Liam and asking those of you in a position to help out to join us.
Thank you Liam for your generosity over the years. All of us at MX for Children wish you a speedy recovery and to the race track.
