A Terminal Illness Tale: Heed The Warning and Prioritize Health

A man who is near death has fervently recommended the general people to put their health first after he made a terrible mistake himself.

Liam Griffiths, plagued by the thought that his life-threatening illness may have been avoided if he had not disregarded important health signs, is finding himself racing against time to cross things off his bucket list.

At the age of 31, Liam laments his existence and describes himself as a “shadow” of the energetic person he used to be. Before his sickness severely limited his physical skills, he was well recognized for his excellent health and regular gym attendance. Liam says, “Physically, I’m fragile now, a mere shadow of who I once was.” “I was in top shape and worked out every day, but now I have trouble breathing and find it difficult to climb stairs,” he continues.

About March, Liam started experiencing signs of poor health, including vomiting, cramps, persistent constipation, and stomach enlargement. Because he was self-employed, he was initially hesitant to seek medical attention because he was concerned about the financial consequences.

But as his symptoms grew worse, hospitalization was unavoidable. After receiving an initial diagnosis of Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel condition, more testing revealed he had peritoneal cancer. This was a dire development. Liam had a grave diagnosis after receiving chemotherapy and surgery in an attempt to eradicate the cancer, but the therapies were ineffective.


“The doctors advised me to live life and not to focus only on the countdown,” Liam recalled. “They avoided giving me a specific timeframe for my life expectancy.” Liam is now focused on making special moments with his loved ones since he is determined to make the most of his remaining time.

Liam’s bucket list has had to be drastically altered, since he no longer has the desire to partake in physically demanding sports like skiing or finishing Tough Mudder. He now places more emphasis on emotionally fulfilling but less taxing interactions with his loved ones and friends.

Liam is dedicated to using his experience to persuade people not to overlook their health in the same way that he did. “My suffering and struggle won’t be in vain if my experience encourages even a small number of people to take their symptoms seriously and see a doctor,” he says.


Since his chemotherapy is no longer working, Liam is looking into other options. His friends and family are still supporting him, and he has started a fundraising drive to help pay for his medical bills, which has received a lot of support.

The fundraising platform’s Pascale Harvie praises Liam as an extraordinarily courageous person whose tale highlights the vital significance of health awareness and prompt medical care.
