My Story

Luken is a bright, energetic toddler. He adores his older brother and is an absolute joy to be with! (2011) That was written a few years ago! Luken continues to be full of energy to say the least... He completed his chemotherapy treatment September 30, 2013. He had he port removed December 13th... He is growing so fast since stopping chemo. He attends a small kindergarten and continues to make progress in "catching up" on some learning/developmental goals. We have no worries though, he is QUITE the force to be reckoned with!! Our family cannot express enough gratitude to anyone involved with St. Baldrick's. As Luken's mother, my words cannot convey how important RESEARCH is to me. I want to see every one of these amazing children have the same chance Luken has at beating cancer.
