Lucas Goldbaum's Journal
Team Lucas Relay for Life
Written Apr 26, 2011 10:18pmHi everyone. One of Lucas’s friends, Henry Molner, is the Captain of a Team Lucas Relay for Life event this May 14th. Lucas’s courage inspired him for a second year to participate in the Relay For Life, a charity which raises money for cancer research. The teams walk all night to raise money and awareness for the cause. Last year Henry and the team raised $2,000 in Lucas’s name. This year the goal is to triple that. If you’d like to contribute, any amount is appreciated by clicking here.
Written Jan 24, 2011 10:13amWow, what a celebration! Thank you for joining us in the freezing, yet beautiful, weather to celebrate Lucas' birthday. It was everything he would have wanted...poignant poetry expressing our love and gratitude for what we have learned from his life and death and then a grand expression of his presence to remind us we just don't die --he is here, everywhere in everything with us....in the sunshine, in the breeze, in the flowers and in the beauty that is part of each of us.
Before we arrived at the ceremony, Zach said, "Mom, Lucas is going to surprise us today at the cemetery. I know what it is and I'm not telling you..." As we were approaching the end of the Happy Birthday song, Zach shouted out, "THERE HE IS!" And a large hawk swooped in for the rest of the song and stayed to remind us once again, "I am here."

Happy Birthday Lucas!
