liam harker is a 17 yo lad from the north east an avid fan of his beloved rafas reds LIVERPOOL F.C...5-6 weeks ago this brave lad was admitted to the RVI HOSP IN NEWCASTLE and was diognosed with stomach cancer he was treated with radiotherapy and on thursday 3RD APRIL after intense treatment was told he had beat the cancer as it had started to shrink in his stomach,friday morning every thing was looking good and positive 4 this brave lad ...then friday night he took a turn 4 the worse
he become very ill and poorly and had a scan and xrays which only revealed the cancer had spread,theyhad initially killed 20% of the cancer but unfortunatly 40% had returned over his body and the poor LIVERPOOL FAN ONLY 17 WAS told THERES NOTHING MORE THAT CAN BE DONE FOR HIM apart from 5 days of radiotherapy WHICH WOULD GIVE THE LAD A FEW MORE DAYS TO LIVE..THIS LAD HAS 2 WEEKS TO LIVE!!!
friday just gone he was allowed home to die as he has 2 weeks to live and at his darlington home macmillan nurses are on hand round the clock to help him and His family in this hard time for liams needs
LIAMS WISH TO HIS DAD WAS TO BE ABLE TO SPEND AND SIT HIS DYING DAYS IN A SIGNED SHIRT FROM HIS BELOVED RED MEN AND TO BE BURIED IN IT
...HIS DAD SAID HE WANTS TO GIVE LIAM 1 LAST HAPPY DAY HAS HE LIVES AND BREEDS RAFAS RED MEN
as im a mad red fan from liverpool but living in the north east a family friend asked could i pull any strings so i contacted lfc public relations spoke to a lovely girl who passed all details on to her manager they read through everything and on monday contacted me asking for liams home address as his wish had come true whichi was really thankful for and his dad was 2 as well as every1 else
yesterday morning i recieved another call from them saying can they have liams telephone number as other things were being dealt with
HE RANG LIAMS DAD AND ONLY INVITED THIS YOUNG DYING REDS FAN A DAY TO REMEMBER ONCE IN A LIFE TIME TO COME DOWN LIVERPOOL ON MONDAY AND VISIT THE GROUND HAVE A TOUR MEET ALL THE PLAYERS BUT ""RAFA"" 1ST AND GET LOTS OF SIGNED SHIRTS AND MEMORIBILLIA....

THANK YOU SO MUCH PUBLIC RELATIONS
please could you add this on to the footy forum from me,
the medical team at the RVI are advising against travelling to LIVERPOOL in case his condition worsens between now and monday , and the travelling to and from the RVI for radiotherapy takes a great deal out of LIAM ,so the medical team and a social worker are in contact with LIVERPOOL FC to see if there was some kind of plan B as liams time is running out,we were actually given between 2-4 weeks and that was just over a week a go,
john...i cant thank you enough for all your help in this,i couldn't have managed with out you,
thanx also to all the well wishers...
this is so heart breaking,i cry everytime i type and think about liam and his familly.
thanx once again
