Meet Luke

Feb 11, 2017

We have a very unique opportunity to get to know and follow one brave little Friends of Karen child and his family. Luke just turned 5 years old in December and is currently in Pre-K. His mom, Nicole, is a teacher, his dad, John, works in sales, and he has a little sister, Grace, who is just a year and a half old. Luke and his family live in Rockland County, NY. They are a happy, unremarkable family, but for one thing… Luke is about to go through a bone marrow transplant (the 2nd in his short life).

"With every step I take I know that I'm not alone.
You take the home from the boy, but not the boy from his home.
These are my streets, the only life I've ever known,
who says you can't go home"...well said Bon Jovi!

Day 49 - Home

Apr 26, 2017

Everything could change in the blink of an eye. Two days ago we were racing to the hospital in a panic. Today we are leaving the hospital and dancing in the parking lot over the unimaginable news that we just heard. Tonight we will be sleeping in our own beds in our own house as a family...We are going home! 

Days 43-48

I remember how many times we did this when he was a baby. Take his temperature...another fever...grab a bag...race out the door. Which hospital do we go to?...Do we chance trying to make it to Philadelphia!? We were in and out of so many hospitals so many times...the feeling tonight just brings back so many horrible memories.
