A VULNERABLE PRESCHOOLER
He's undergoing excruciating chemotherapy. About a week ago, Liam had a bone marrow stem cell transplant and must stay in his room at the St. Louis Childrens' Hospital and visitors must wear masks, so as not to infect the vulnerable preschooler.
Liam began painting artwork as part of his therapy. His mother, Shawna, said that when Liam started painting "he didn't care about the fact that in a couple hours they're going to come in, poke around and it's going to hurt. He just lives for the moment," reported News 13 of Orlando, FL.
EXPENSIVE MEDICAL CARE
His parents are already facing more than $500,000 in bills for his hospital care.
So, to celebrate Liam and his art, the Myricks are auctioning his paintings on Facebook to help defray the costs of his medical expenses.
