Liam Gilchrist ....or Nuckle as we all know him was diagnosed with a stage 4, inoperable brain tumour back in September 2020. This specific type of cancer is rare and usually found in younger children. Heartbreakingly for us all, Liam was told by his doctors that he is terminal with around 12 months to live. Even though he is only 21 years old, he has been, and continues to be so strong and positive throughout his treatment.
Nuckle (Liam) is one of the kindest, most selfless young men you could meet. He will literally do anything for anyone. Growing up, and still to this day his parents have always fostered young children. This is where Nuckle gets his loving and caring nature from. He has always been a role model to the children in his life and is often seen as the man of the house by them too, supporting his mum and dad.
We as his friends are truly heartbroken that this is happening to Liam but we could not be prouder of how he is dealing with it. We cannot begin to imagine what Marie, Colin and the rest of his family must be going through which is why we have made this page.
We know that no amount of money will ever make up or compensate for the struggle, pain, heartache and stress that Liam and his family must be feeling, but we want to at least give them the opportunity to have a break from it all as much as they can. Spend some quality time together as a family. Give them something to look forward to. Or even just to give them a helping hand through these difficult times.
We are not here to beg or to ask for pity for our friend. We just truly believe he deserves every bit of support he can get. This could not have happened to a nicer person and family so if there’s anything we can do to put a smile on their faces .... even if it’s only temporary....that is what we want to do with everyone’s support!!
So please be kind enough to support us with supporting Liam and his family. Whether it be a penny or a pound.....it couldn’t be spent on a better cause!
Thanks in advance everyone x
