“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Noah Luce won’t be stopped. He is 3 years old diagnosed with clear cell sarcoma of the kidney on Fathers Day. Going into the emergency room that day little did we know we would never go back home. Noahs life changed in hours and hasn’t given up in the slightest. His personality pours into the hearts of everyone he meets. He encourages his new friends on the pediatric cancer unit everyday to smile play laugh and get up and get going. After every stay in the hospital he gives away his balloons to his new friends is concerned when he hears the cries in the bed next to us and insists on checking on them. Daily he says to me, mommy I’m not sick! He is not sick we just have one large jaw breaker in his tummy we want to get out I tell him. He continues to push me everyday to laugh tickle and jump like crazy no matter the situation. Noah is a mighty superhero on a mission of laughter to brighten the darkest of days.” – Krystal C.
