In August, 2015 our family received the difficult news that our 15 year old son Luke had a cancerous tumor in his lower right leg. Luke's cancer had spread (5 or 6 random small tumors), making his condition much more serious. The type of cancer Luke had is very rare...only about 400 people right now in the US have it. After two years of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, Luke passed away on September 6th, 2017. We are devastated by this loss, and thankful for God's grace in saving Luke into an eternal relationship with Jesus.
Our prayer has always been simple: God heal our boy. (James 5:14-16) Because our true hope is in Jesus (I Peter 1:3) and our times are in His hands (Psalm 31:15), we trust that Luke has been made whole in heaven through Jesus. Luke is a child of God, saved by grace through His faith in Jesus. (Ephesians 2:8-9) We will see him again. In the meantime, we miss him terribly every day.
At Luke's request we have established the Luke Legacy Fund, which will provide kids in Michigan with affordable access to a Young Life camp experience. Luke's own money was used to establish the Luke Legacy Fund, and over 300 individuals have now contributed funds.
All gifts are tax deductible. Thank you so much for caring about Luke, and for allowing us to honor and remember him by allowing kids to experience Jesus through the Luke Legacy Fund.
