7 years ago Kaden came into our lives fighting for his life, with love and support of family and friends we managed to get through it. 7 years on he is in another battle, this time with liver cancer. With Lee and myself off work while Kaden is getting chemo, we have been overwhelmed with the love and support that everyone has shown. Our families flying interstate, friends and family putting on fundraisers to help us with the financial burden. We are truly lost for words.
We thank you with all our hearts
Lee, Fin, Kaden and Liam xxxx
On Saturday, friends of the McDevitt family (from Kaden’s school), Tracey and John held a fundraising party at their own home. A huge amount of effort has gone into this, with raffles, games, donations from local business, live and silent auctions. There was even a jumping castle for the kids (and even some of the big kids 😉 ). They also provided all the food for the day! The generosity of these two beautiful people is unbelievable. Finn and the McDevitts managed to take a few hours away to come along to the event, and were completely overwhelmed. What a fantastic achievement! A huge thank-you goes to all the people involved in this wonderful event!
As of yesterday it was decided to put Kaden on an IV for pain relief. Although they still strongly suspect one of the Chemotherapy drugs to be the main cause of the pain, they are still running various tests to check. Kaden seems to be a lot more settled since going on to this IV drug. Obviously, it has been a very stressful time for Finn and Lee, having to see their boy in so much pain. What a wonderful job they are doing, and all our love and support goes to them as well.
Obviously with all this going on Kaden has been struggling to eat. Being the trooper that he is, he has been managing to drink some protein milk. Keep it up little man, and hang tough!
