 ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL
As you already know, my nephew Lucas was recently diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Pseudomyogenic Hemangioendothelioma. This is a vascular tumor that is growing on 3 spots in his tiba and fibula (long leg bones), 1 spot on his talus (foot bone) and also in the lymph nodes behind his knee and near his groin. 

Treatment and doctor costs are the tip of the iceburg. There are so many other costs such as gas, hotels, travel, food and missed time from work that are piling up fast. Any donation would be much appreciated!

We love you Lucas, time to kick cancer's butt!!!

Our next chemo day is this Thursday, Feb 1st down at Rush Hospital. Prayers for an easy day, that his body handles the higher dose this time, and that the medicine does what it's supposed to do.

After battling a rare type of bone cancer like a champ for over two years Lucas and his family are reaching out for help and support again. The road has been long and we thought we were out of the woods and headed to the end of treatment this summer...but all of that changed with a bad PET scan two weeks ago.
All of a sudden Luc's ankle tumor showed signs of growth and spots are lighting up in his hips and chest. We will know more once the MRI happens on Feb 12th, but for now doctors have upped his daily chemo meds and have planned an IV chemo day on Thursday Feb 1st.
The community of Gilberts has come together to show support for Lucas and it has been amazing. The village wrote a message for him on the town sign and our neighborhood is lighting up their houses yellow as well.
Right now we are in need of help paying towards our insurance deductible and for Luc's prescriptions in the upcoming weeks. Anything would be greatly appreciated and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! -The Winarski Family.

Thank you everyone for all your generous donations over these past few months. You have all helped ease the struggle for this little guy.

As you know Lucas is making great progress, but we're not out of the woods just yet. Any donation, no matter how small is greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much to all of you who have generously donated. Lucas and Laura had to travel to Cincinnati this week to see another specialist. Your money is being put to good use! Remember every donation makes a difference to Luc!

Thanks so much everyone!!! We have to wait for scheduling to call and confirm, but it looks like Lucas should start his treatments this coming up Friday at Rush. Hopefully just one long day in the hospital getting mess by IV and then home to sleep in our own beds. We've got this!!!
