I am Luke and I love FOOD!  I am in month 24 of a 42 month treatment protocol.  I have had numerous rounds of chemo, endured hours of waiting for infusions at the hospital, had several lengthy hospital stays, 10 days of radiation, over 20 spinal taps, 10 bone marrow biopsies, had a port placed twice, gained 13 pounds but lost 20 pounds and lost my hair twice.  I am now rocking an afro!  My mom says I'm a SUPERHERO for having to go through all of this at such a young age...I'm only 6!  I have been able to keep my strength and carefree attitude with the help of my family especially my mom, dad and 2 brothers who CUT ME NO SLACK!  They along with my faith in an even bigger GOD, I am kicking cancer in the butt!  It doesn't hold me back!  I love Legos, THE Ohio State Buckeyes and swimming.  My 2 best friends in the whole world are Brutus Buckeye and NASCAR driver Chris Buescher.  Look him up my face was on a car he took VICTORY LANE!
