Luc was a normal 16-year-old boy who loved playing baseball and video games. Baseball has always been his passion and he’s played since he was five years old. Sadly, the last baseball game Luc played was the day before he was diagnosed B-cell with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He played through the pain for two games, but nausea, a low fever, and fatigue sent him to CHOA urgent care. Around 6am the next morning, he received his cancer diagnosis. Luc spent 23 nights total in the hospital during induction phase, including his 16th birthday. Thankfully, he has received very encouraging results during the beginning of his treatment. Luc remains hopeful and positive about his new journey and continues to make his family and friends laugh all the time. His family is in awe of his resilience and attitude every day.
Every child who has been diagnosed with childhood cancer inspires us to Rally On to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a donation or setting up your own Rally fundraiser today.
