Lucas’s Story

Site created on February 15, 2019

Lucas Daniel Brown was diagnosed with stage 4 rhabdoid tumor in February. As we are preparing to enter into this journey, Lucas is continuing to find such joy in his two sister dogs. He loves watching them play and giggles right along with them. He also has recently perfected the task of rolling over, and is very proud of this accomplishment. He also enjoys taking walks in the nice Texas breeze, blowing raspberries, and most importantly snuggling. Coming from foodie parents, he has really been enjoying trying all the new solids foods! 

We want Lucas to live his life to fullest and enjoy every minute, although it may be difficult, that is our goal.

We plan to start treatment, in the very near future, at Children's Medical Center in Dallas. While treatment begins, and as always, we will be focusing on spending quality family time with our sweet baby. As we know, Lucas' journey will be weighing heavy on the the hearts and minds of our dear family and friends. With that in mind, we hope to use this forum to keep all of our close family and friends up to date with Lucas' treatment so we can spend maximal time together. 

We are asking for prayers to heal our sweet baby boy. Scripture to pray over Lucas is as followed, Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you (Lucas)", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper him and not to harm him, plans to give him hope and a future."

Journal entry by Kelly Brown

Consider it pure joy brothers and sisters whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that testing of your faith produced perseverance - James 1:2-3

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those that love him - James 1:12

Lucas, my sweet boy, you persevered and gained a well deserved crown and no doubt gorgeous angel wings. 
I hope to one day understand “the bigger picture” of Lucas’ cancer and his death but for now I remain completely heart broken. The pain of losing your child is exquisitely hard, devestating might be a better word but the thought of never knowing Lucas if far too painful to ever conceive. Because dear Lucas you were a complete joy and abundant light to all that knew you. Your dad and my heart grew greater than we knew possible the moment we met you. 
We were blessed with the amazing task of loving you all 314 days that you lived on this earth. We are so greatful to have known your beautiful soul and create wonderful, joyful memories that we will treasure always. Buddy, we miss you terribly but we will be okay. You enjoy your beautiful, pain free body and heaven with your two doggies, Gracie and Sammie. We love you so very much. Come visit us sometime 💕🦖🦕

I want to thank everyone who has been apart of our journey whether personally involved or just reading along these entries. Thank you for praying along us and rooting for Lucas’ well being. We needed that support both then and now. We are truly grateful. Do us a favor and enjoy the small stuff. Give your loved ones an extra hug. Smile at a stranger. You don’t truly know what another person is living through so be kind. And if you see a Dino randomly, maybe it’s Lucas saying hi. We’ve had lots of sightings lately. Love you all 🧡🦕🦖
