This cute little cherub faced boy is 16 month old Liam Houck of San Diego.  Specifically, they live right here in my small town of Ramona.  His father is Marine Corps Captain Reid Houck out of MCAS Miramar and his mommy Vanessa left the Air Force to devote her time to little Liam.  Liam is in end stage renal failure due to being born with Eagle Barrett’s Syndrome (Prune Belly Syndrome) and he is in desperate need of a new kidney!

Even with his parents military insurance, they are coming up short on the medical bills.  This seems to be a recurring problem in this country since my cousin Penny is still dealing with the same problem.  The family needs to raise about $50,000.00 to cover medical expenses.  But almost more importantly than that is that they are STILL looking for a compatible kidney.

Here is a little video so you can learn more about Liam:

Please help spread the word of this cutie pie.  He is running out of time.  As a mommy I just can’t imagine what it is like for Vanessa.  If you have a few bucks to spare, you can donate on his COTA page linked below (Children’s Organ Transplant Association).  You can also learn more about him, leave encouraging comments for his family and find out how to help in the search for a kidney.  There is also news about upcoming fund raising events.
