Little's Legends is a community to support Richie 'Little' Walsh in his fight against cancer. We aim to raise money to support Richie and his family and get him the treatment he needs to save his life.
We were told on Monday 16th March 2020, that day changed our lives forever. We want the world to pray for Richie.
My beautiful boy Richie, since the day you were born I have loved you like all my other children so much.
I am not going to lie when your mummy told me you were coming to us from God I was a bit shocked as we already had 3 other children, but I am so glad that you were sent to us.
The day you were born was also special, Me and your mum had just been out for a walk in the English countryside Lyme Park for those of you that know it.
We had only just got home and you decided you wanted to be born. the midwives took a long time to get to our house and I nearly had to deliver you myself.
When you were born you were born in your water's, with a caul or some call it a veiled birth.
This is very very lucky for you and your parents, me and your mum. sailors believe you will be immune from drowning.
So my boy you are super lucky and super strong and you are proving this every day.
From that first moment I held you in my hands Richie I fell in love with you. I knew I would do
anything and everything in the world to protect you.
8 years later you are my best mate, my super funny guy who I love so much, please keep fighting for me, Richie you make me so proud, you are so brave what you have been through nobody should have to experience.
Especially a little boy like yourself, but remember this no matter what, you will always have me and your family at your side.
My amazing Son Richie " Little " Walsh x
It is scary where the time goes it is 16 months since we found out about Richie's cancer diagnosis.
The past months have been hard but as a family, we have got stronger and even closer.
The treatment for Richie's cancer is not easing up though.
He has had 30 cycles of radiotherapy, hopefully, this will kill all the cancerous cells, but the long term implications will have a huge effect on Richie's long term life.
Also now we have to wait a few more weeks for the scans and to see if it will benefit Richie to have a new type of radiation overseas.
The cost will be huge as Australia does not have this treatment. Richie's Doctors are now in talks with the USA.
These costs are going to be huge.
Ongoing cost's of medication, fuel, car parks, food, and just general bills are now taking a huge hit on our financial circumstances.
As Lisa has had to step back from her career as a midwife to care for Richie and we cannot claim one cent of the Government until we have been on our permanent visas for 2 years.(2023)
Cancer, really does punish the whole family, all our dreams and goals have now changed.
It really is a case of just surviving now and getting Little the treatment he needs to save his life.
Wow, We can not thank Dan TDM Enough for this message for Little.
Richie is over the moon and this message is just perfect timing.
Dan TDM you are a true Little's Legend.
