LINKED WITH LIAM WARRIOR PROGRAMS!
A WARRIORS MIND, A WARRIORS SPIRIT AND A WARRIORS FAMILY IS WHAT OUR FOUR PROGRAMS ARE ALL ABOUT.
HAVING A CHILD WITH CANCER CAN BE A NIGHTMARE, BUT WITH THE RIGHT SUPPORT, THESE WARRIORS CAN PULL THROUGH WITH THEIR SPIRITS INTACT.
The Dream Catcher program lets them know they are safe. That if they stay Strong and Brave, each day will get easier as they go forward. …Because Everybody Dreams!
The Ojibwe people have an ancient legend about the origin of the dream catcher. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants.
The Ojibwa (Chippewa) believe that night is full of both good and bad dreams. When a dream catcher is hung above the place where you sleep it moves freely in the night air and catches the dreams as they drift by. The good dreams, knowing their way, pass through the opening in the center of the webbing while the bad dreams, not knowing the way, are caught in the webbing and destroyed at the first light of the morning sun. Some which say the good dreams slide down the feather to those sleeping below.
Although the Ojibwa are credited as the first people to use Dream Catchers many other Tribes and Native peoples have adopted Dream Catchers into their culture. We at Linked with Liam have adopted the Dream Catcher into our culture as well!
LINKED WITH LIAM FAMILY PROGRAMS!
Helping Hearts and Hands
Our Helping Hearts and Hands fund is designed to help with those indirect costs and other expenses that having a child with cancer can bring. Families of children with cancer often face financial difficulties. The Linked with Liam Foundation is dedicated to raising money for these families. It is our mission to improve the lives of children with cancer and their families with much needed support in their battle against these life threatening illness. We help with expenses that these families encounter when they are forced to put their lives on hold to be with their children. We know that family support can be just as important to recovery as medicine.
The Helping Hearts and Hands Fund provides support to children from the difficulties and challenges of pediatric cancer treatment. We also help the families who love, care and support these brave Warriors. The reality is that current treatments and clinical trials will not cure many of these children. Families need our help today so we depend on your help to provide assistance to make their lives a little easier.
Liam’s Christmas Wish
Our Liam’s Christmas Wish program can make sure that even while all of this is going on, we will make sure that the holidays can still be a time of Hope & Joy. One popular programs is our Christmas program called Liam’s Christmas Wish.
This program not only provides Christmas to our Cancer Warriors but to their families as well. The expenses that these families encounter, when they are forced to put their lives on hold to be with their child, often times leaves a void and siblings or family members have to go without.
The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love, generosity and goodness so Liam’s Christmas Wish is that cancer not steal Christmas too. During the Christmas season we try to sponsor our warrior families who may need extra support to make Christmas a little brighter.
Join us all at Linked With Liam in helping to bring Christmas JOY to our warriors and families with our Liam’s Christmas Wish Program.
