The Story

Anyone that has met Lucas "Lukey Luke" knows he is the sweetest, most loving little boy! Anyone that hasn't met him, you are seriously missing out an on amazing kid!! At just 3 years old Lucas is facing the fight of his life. He has been diagnosed with cancer. He has a large malignant tumor on his spinal cord. This was completely unexpected. I guess it always is when something like this happens. You just never expect it to happen to your child... until it does. My heart just aches so much for this family. They are headed to St. Jude's in Memphis today. The family is unsure how long they will be there. Lucas's parents will be out of work to be with him. Hospital life is NOT cheap, and unfortunately the world doesn't stop spinning when something like this happens (even though it feels like it) so bills have to be paid. They will have no income coming in due to being with Lucas out of town while he is undergoing his treatment. I want to help relieve their financial burden so that they are able to focus solely on the health of their son. I'm asking all of you that will to help me relieve this financial burden from them. If you don't have it to give, please send your prayers. Prayers are what are needed most during this trying time. This tumor may be big, but our mighty God is bigger.

Lucas arrived in Memphis late last night. He will have surgery tomorrow morning around 7:30. They will go in and put a shunt in to help with his spinal fluid. Then, in the same surgery, try and remove the tumor. Risks include muscle weakness, loss of control of bowel/bladder, and paralysis. It will be about an 8 to 10 hour surgery. Please keep this sweet boy in your prayers as well as his family. Tomorrow will be a long day for all of them.
