Liam's recovery after his gene transfer surgery on Tuesday has been remarkable, so much so, that Liam's medical team have permitted the 2 year old to be discharged from the main hospital. Liam will remain at the hospitals guest facility, located within the hospital complex.

Liam has been up and about all day and has been very stable on his feet, he even enjoyed an hour outside feeding the local pigeons!

We are exceptionally grateful for well wishes and support which is coming from people back home and from all over the world. Thank you all most sincerely.

We are also amazed to see that 7600 people have already seen our awareness You Tube movie which is dedicated to Saoirse.
