Lucas’s Story

Site created on October 22, 2019

Lucas Fehr "Lu" was diagnosed with B Cell Lymphoma, a form of Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, following a biopsy on his tonsils, post T&A surgery.  Gratefully the lymphoma was found to be contained in just a mass on the left side if his neck. One month after having his tonsils out, he started his first of four rounds of Chemotherapy.

Today is a day that isn't one to be celebrated but rather more acknowledged and, in its own way, be grateful for. 

September 24, 2019, Lucas was officially diagnosed with Non Hodgkins B Cell Lymphoma. It was the day we met his Oncology team at Children's Minnesota and started the journey of fighting cancer. Now, one year later, as I , WE, ponder ALL that has transpired over the last 12 months, there are not adequate words or emotions that could encompass and describe it. I am not sure there ever will be - for such specific lables are not so easily defined, especially in the life of a Cancer warrior.

Lucas is still cancer free - we expect he will have another scan in the next 2-4 weeks. Back in June, His Titers test- which measures his levels of immunities from previous vaccines - came back with really great results. The chemotherapy  had only wiped out 3 major vaccines ... so Lu  has begun the revaccination process for these, which will take place over the next year.

In the mean time, Lu's "Orange  hair" has made it's  return and he has grown 3 inches since August 2019. Living, thriving, growing, and learning, the physical effects of his cancer journey are less visible each day. Though now, a newer journey, as we embrace the wide ranging cognitive and emotional  effects that will be with him for the rest of his life. We have pivoted into enjoying each day a little more thoroughly and intentionally look for the flecks of gold that fill our days with hope and God's tender mercies.
