FULL STORY: Along with the joys in life are the trials and tribulations that help us grow stronger, together, each and every day. But this young man is taking his illness and using it to bring joy to not just himself, but others as well.
This Daily Dose of Good was sent to us from Randi Wall, in regards to a loving boy named Lukas.
Lukas is from Northfield, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after his first birthday. For most of his life since then, Lukas' condition was listed as stable. Despite his seizures, he has been a wonderful kid and friend to many. Sadly, his family recently discovered that his tumor has rapidly grown back resulting in immediate surgery. Since then, he's had the regrowth of two new brain tumors and will soon be undergoing surgery and appropriate treatment.
While dealing with all of this, Lukas is still spending his time as best and as much like a kid as he can. He loves legos more than anything in the world and recently, he's been playing as a guest teammate on some of our local little league teams during their games. He loves being able to spend time with his friends and the baseball field is where he thrives.
Lukas is an amazing kid with such spirit for all that he has been through in his short life, he just wants to make people laugh and smile!
So, here's to hoping that we can help him knock these tumors out of the park and can enjoy a walk-off win at life following his recovery! --see what we did there ;)
