Lucas Dinsmore is battling Lymphoma again for the second time in his young age of 12 years old. Lucas was diagnosed with Lymphoma the first time on September 18, 2009. After 12 weeks straight of chemo in Seattle at the Children's Hospital, he went into remission. His labs were good for nearly 7 years. Unfortunately, this year on August 16, 2016 he had a bout of Bells Palsy that showed a new diagnosis of Lymphoma. Lucas recently underwent surgery to remove tumors and several inches of his intestines. The plan is to start him on another round of chemo on Wednesday, October 19th. He will need to spend several months in Seattle for testing and a bone marrow transplant.
Some family history; Lucas was 15 months old when he lost his older brother to Leukemia. His family is all too familiar with the heartbreak these types of illnesses cause.
Lucas' father, Gale "TJ" Dinsmore and grandmother, Debra Dinsmore, have been there to support Lucas through this painful battle. He is the toughest and most positive kid you will ever meet.
Please help the Dinsmores during their fight againts Lymphoma. TJ (Lucas' father) is soon to be laid off from his job for the remainder of the winter and will NEED our help and support.
