In 2014 Team Luke was founded after our son Luke was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The one thing we knew that we had control of during this fight was the fact that we could and would make a difference through fundraising for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and advocacy for other families in the future. It was the least we could do because they were saving our childs life.
Since 2014 team Luke has made an impact , In 6 years we have raised almost $140,000 for the Ride for Roswell. We are no where near finished.
Even though Luke completed his chemo treatment in April 2016 he still requires after care visits for the remainder of his life. Roswell Park will remain a huge part of our new journey. As we explore this new journey of being off treatment, we are learning how to navigate long term side effects and figuring out how to get back to life.
Cancer continues to affect many around us both children and adults are diagnosed and treated daily. We need to continue to raise funds to support ongoing research for new treatments.
Through monies raised, not only does Roswell participate in research but they provide programming for those during and after treatment. Organizations such as Courage of Carly Fund has been vital in Lukes treatment providing our entire family with love and support. Please consider donating what you can to our team.Every little bit helps. Our team goal this year is $20,000 Won't you be a part of our mission?
Thank you for your support!
