Our son, Nathan, was diagnosed with an autoimmune blood disease-ALPS
(Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome) in 2009, when he was 13 years of age.
As his disease progressed, he's been hospitalized more and more frequently due
to multiple infections (from hemorrhagic nose bleeds, skin abscesses to neutropenic fevers-just to name a
few) and needing multiple blood transfusions a week. He led a life of isolation and seclusion from families and friends. This disease prevented him from attending conventional school, any contact sports, and hanging out with friends. Our son was deprived from the usual teenage life. He had fought very courageously throughout all chemotherapy treatments and trial drugs, especially during his bone marrow transplant.
And yet, that didn't stop him from dreaming and hoping that someday he will be able to contribute and make a difference to every children who's experiencing any kind of diseases. He was very warm, kind, loving, optimistic, respectful, courageous, and gentleman ways will forever be remembered by those that surrounded him.  He was a special young man who inspired many. 
This page is to honor and support his legacy.
He became one of God's angels on July 8th. Please help us to keep this dream alive.
We would like to continue Nathan's dreams of helping children with ALPS and
their families cope and send aid in times of needs. Any support will make this
dream much closer to reality for him and other children in need.

Thank you,
Laine Lucas (mother)
