Story

On September 17th, 2016, our little boy Lucas (age 5) was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). DIPG is a terminal cancer residing in the brainstem - and one doctors hate because it in inoperable. We are doing everything we possibly can to combat the cancer and chase new science, light and hope for Lucas. As parents going through this, we can assure you there is no greater heartbreak. When something like this happens, you understand in an instant what truly matters in life.
