Lucas’s Story

Welcome to Lucas's site. He created it to keep friends and family updated about what's happening in his life and with his illness.

His Story is pretty simple. As he said; "one day I didn't have a brain tumor, and the next day I discovered I did."

He battled the tumor in his head for twenty-two courageous months passing peacefully the night of May 12th, 2010. Lucas lives on in so many lives.

A love letter...

To my beloved son,
Finally getting our non profit off the ground, Transforming Medicine, a non profit inspired by your journey and the journey of so many others whose lives are cut short by intractable cancers.  Thank you for giving me the strength to help others, I know its what you would have wanted.   You'll love this, we're using big data, cloud computing and systems biology to find the right treatment for a patient with a serious illness.  Two of your favorite things, computers and biology! 
We're taking on brain cancer, blood cancers, pancreatic cancers and other diseases. Watch over us, help us succeed! 
I love you and I miss you everyday. 
Always in my Mom
