“My son Lucas was a fighter since we first found out on September 28, 2012 that he had ALL. He gave it his all until his final breath on Jun 28, 2014. My baby is my hero and always will be. He went into remission Oct 29, 2012 but relapsed March 11, 2014. He received a bone marrow transplant May 28, 2014 but due to complications from the high doses of chemo and radiation his little body just couldn’t fight anymore. He has touched the lives of many and in his honor I think he deserves a Gold Ribbon.” – Robin S.
