As many of you know Luke was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma in January of 2018. Which is bone cancer. He has a stress fracture in his right femur which involves a full leg cast. The cancer is localized to his right femur. After much testing we are grateful that the cancer has not spread anywhere else. Luke's treatment involves chemotherapy and surgery on his right leg. With his chemo treatments since he is a pediatric patient it involves a hospital stay each time. The prognosis is very good - as his oncologist said his type of cancer is treatable. But for a 15 year old going through this it is a lot to take in and deal with. He makes the best of it and the Luke we all love says he's got this!
