For my son, Liam, a survivor of bilateral retinoblastoma

My Story

31 Aug 2022

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? This cause is deeply personal for me and my family.

In September 2014, our world was turned upside down when our then 22-month-old son, Liam, was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma. Within a few days of his diagnosis, he began chemotherapy treatments. He bravely faced multiple rounds of chemo, several surgeries and laser treatments. His incredible medical team was able to keep the cancer from spreading to his brain, and in 2015, Liam entered remission.

This month will be 8 years since his diagnosis, and I'm happy to report that Liam has transitioned from remission to survivorship. He's a happy, thriving 4th grader with a bright future ahead of him. We could not be more proud and grateful.

And yet, it is never lost on me how lucky we are. Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change lives. Lives like ours.

Thank you.

The Hagdorns

Kate, Andrew, Liam & Colin
