Here is the News Paper article where it tells the story of how Caleb has been denied the chance at life and Cathy's relentless pursuit to save her son'!!!
Also follow Caleb on Facebook:
Caleb Lucas was born with a very serious heart defect called Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome (lymans term he was born with Half of a Heart). Caleb has had over 50 surgeries 9 of which were open heart. Over the last 7 years Caleb has had many ups and downs. Now the only thing that can save Caleb's life is a heart transplant. We have just recently found out the current cooler system on home he lives poses a threat to Caleb's life after he has his transplant (due to the bacteria and mold).
The house Caleb and Cathy live in is co-owned by Cathy and her aunts was built in 1949 and doesn't have the appropriate accommodations to sustain Caleb's life after transplant more importantly is not up to the proper specifications for Caleb to even be placed on the transplant list. So because of these issues and the fact Cathy's aunts in the past have been unwilling to sign permits to upgrade the house it is in Cathy and Caleb's best interest to move so that she can focus on caring for Caleb.
That's where we need your help!!! Cathy is unable to work, the seriousness of Caleb's condition requires her to care for Caleb full-time. Caleb's immune system has made it where he can not live a life of a normal child and spends most of his days inside away from the harmful germs that could potentially end his life. We are trying to raise the money to buy a home that accommodates all of Caleb's needs and takes away the stresses of the present situation.
Cathy is an incredible mom and has done amazing things to make sure Caleb's life is the very best it can be. We are proud of Caleb and Cathy for their strength to beat all the odds that have been placed in front of them. Now please become part of tean Caleb and lets give him every chance at the great life he deserves!!
