The Story

Caleb Lucas was born with a Congenital Heart Defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. When Caleb was 6 days old he had his first open heart surgery. To date, Caleb has had 9 open heart surgeries and over a hundred other surgeries to prolong the life of his heart. We've always known that a full heart transplant was needed, but as with every family, we were hopeful we had time. Unfortunately, time was not on our side, and Caleb has had to begin the process to come eligible for a heart donation. The doctors at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University have placed a pacemaker in Caleb's heart to help keep it beating. Unfortunately our baby boy lost his battle while waiting. He was so strong for so long and his little body was just tired of fighting.  We appreciate anything you are able to give, even if it is a just a prayer, or a good thought for our little Hero Caleb..!

On behalf of my family and I we would like to thank all of you for your generous donations! We are happy to say that Calebs Celebration of Life was everything and more thanks to you. From here on out any monies donated will go towards everyday expenses for my Mom. She got paid to take care of Caleb through a program called In Home Support Services. This programs allow parents and care takers to stay home and take care of their loved ones instead of having to hire an outside nurse. Since Caleb has passed, she no longer qualifies for this program, and as we all know, life does not care much about circumstance. When bills are due, they are due. Any funds donated from here on out will go towards cost of living for my Mom until she can grieve for my brother, and find a job. We appreciate every single one of you for the love you all show and the support that has been given. Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time.
