His last operation was six weeks ago at Yorkhill but since being diagnosed with the cyst he has been in and out of hospitals all his life.
On Tuesday, Lauchlan met Scotland manager Craig Levein at one of the national teams training sessions in Greenock.
And now Cambuslangs Whitefield Bowling Club have decided to hold a charity tournament in honour the brave battler.
Mum Debi (36) was a junior member with the club, and her dad Robert is still a member there. She is touched the club are holding the event in aid of Lauchlan. However, it was the youngsters decision for all the funds raised to go to the charity, Child Brain Injury Trust.
She said: For all the time hes been ill no one has ever done anything like this. Initially, they wanted to get Lauchlan something, like a weekend away or a new computer, but Lauchlan wanted it to go to charity. Its a very nice gesture and hopefully Lauchlan will be able to make it on Saturday to throw a few bowls himself.
It will take place this Saturday (September 8) from 10am till 5pm.Secretary of the bowling club Douglas Knape said: Usually we hold a charity tournament every year and we like to keep the cause local.
The money raised will help in some small way to support the trust who are constantly needing funds, which are used to provide advice and support to families who find themselves with a child with an acquired brain injury.
Like any young boy, Lauchlan enjoys playing football with his friends and his Xbox. He attends Auchinraith Primary in Blantyre but is currently only there three days a week because of the treatment he requires. He sometimes travels to school in a taxi as the school bus can be too noisy.
Tragically Lauchlans dad, Barry, died three years ago due to skin cancer devastating Debi, Lauchlan and Lauchlans sister Amber (17).
Lauchlan previously under went a cranial vault expansion which is a procedure in which strips of the bone on the skull are removed to relieve pressure on the brain. However, it was unsuccessful, and the shunts fitted in his skull continue to malfunction.
Debi added: When he was a a toddler he would get really bad headaches and hit his head against the wall. We took him to the hospital and thats when they discovered he had the cyst.
To this day, though, if hes got a really bad one hell hit his head against walls.
The shunts dont seem to work for any length of time, so he needs to keep going back to the hospital.
When the shunts fail he will quite often start to twitch, and youre guaranteed hell be in hospital within the next couple of days.
I dont know how he lives with a constant headache. I couldnt do it. He is absolutely amazing.
l Slit ventricle syndrome occurs in minority of patients who have had shunts fitted. Usually it occurs when the shunt becomes blocked. Symptoms often occur years after shunt placement or revision. The most severe form of slit ventricle syndrome occurs in children.
l Complex hydrocephalus also known as water in the brain, is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles, or cavities, of the brain.
