Liam contracted Meningococcal Septacaemia at the age of two which left him with cerebral Palsy. When Liam came out of hospital, doctors told his parents that he would be blind, deaf and totally disabled for life. How wrong they were. Liam was, and continues to be, a little fighter who has overcome many hurdles in his life so far, not least of which are the numerous operations he has had to endure. Liam has been attending the Aiming High youth club here at Millom Children's centre since July last year. He is always positive and has challenged himself in all the activities he has participated in which include climbing walls, ropes challenge, canoeing and archery. He also wholeheartedly supports and encourages others in the group to achieve their goals. Liam never complains about his disability or lets it get in the way of him having fun and is very open and willing to discuss his mobility problems with others who may not understand. Liam is a delight to know and deserves to carry the Olympic Torch in recognition of his courage, zest and enthusiam to achieve as much as he can. An opportunity such as this will, I am sure, give Liam an immense sense of joy and pride and prove himself to be an inspiration to all those people who would see and meet him.
