Baby Liam

Friends of mine and Steve are fighting a battle everyday. Their baby was born much too early, and they could use our help. This post is to put all of the ways that you can help in one place.
Daddy changing a diaper!
Baby LIAM DECLAN BRANHAM who was born on March 29, 2013 weighing only 1 pound 7 ounces and was 11 3/4 inches long. Liam's mom had an incompetent cervix and could not carry him any longer. The doctors gave Liam a 5 percent chance to live and said he most likely would not live through birth. Liam was born crying and kicked the doctor - he wanted to live!! He has been fighting to survive every day. Liam will remain in the hospital until July and will need surgery at All Children's before he goes home.
