To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when stars shine brightest!
Welcome to Lucas' Web Page. Lucas, our third child, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.)on January 20th, 2004. As his name implies, Lucas is our bright light. He is a child who always keeps his face to the sunshine so that he doesn't have to see the shadows behind him. Please share in his journey from beginning to end; follow his daily adventures through his already wise eyes.
Feel free to leave a message of support; they are always appreciated.
Here are some references to help you understand what the "normal" is for healthy children. We speak of Lucas's blood test so often, we thought you might appreciate these. WBC- white blood count 5.5-14.5 RBC- red blood count 3.9-5.3 Hemoglobin (found in red blood carries oxygen) 115-135 Platelet- Blood clotting 150-450 ANC (neutrophils)-immune system 1.260-8.680 Please leave a message for Lucas, he makes us check each day
