Luke The Brave

Luke is 21 years old and has faced more challenges, surgeries, doctors visits & physical pain than most people would in a couple lifetimes. What makes Luke so special is that despite his pain and struggle, he manages to maintain the most positive attitude & unfaltering strength you've ever witnessed in a human being. While most of us let the tiniest setback ruin our day, Luke finds a way to live every day to the fullest & keep smiling, despite his many challenges & endless pain. He is an joyful inspiration to anyone who has had the pleasure of crossing his path.

Diagnosed with Epidermolysis Bullosa at birth, Luke has beaten the odds and fought a very hard battle day in and day out of his life. After 16 years of physical pain, multiple surgeries & sleepless nights, Luke found some relief & comfort in using medical marijuana.

Earlier this year the news that Luke had Squamous Cell Carcinoma devastated us who love him. Luke however, held his head high and showed the strength of a lion once again. Now just days away from his 21st birthday, the cancer thought to have been gone, has now returned & the doctors want Luke to consider amputating his arms.

Here is a recent post from Luke concerning his Cancer & his decision to fight...

"I just got back my biopsy results from my left elbow 3 weeks ago and the plastic surgeon said my Squamous Cell Carcinoma- Skin Cancer is back! All I can say and do is Stay Strong, Hope for the best and keep praying that this leaves my body and I will get better ASAP. We are going the Natural route because the Drs have mentioned about amputating my left arm because of the Cancer getting deeper and right now I can move my arm and I have no pain, never did I ever think of anyone ever saying this to me but you know what, God gives his toughest Battles to his Strongest Warriors and I believe that I Will and can get through this because I have experienced some hardships and tribulations in my life but nothing has or will ever stop me from giving up because I am the one with the voice and the power to make these decisions and I made my decision too go my way for right now and I know the Drs are trying to figure how we can get this better but they don't understand that I need both arms and my hands too live. I am not going Down without a fight and I'm ready to overcome this and be Cancer free so I can begin healing and prepare for my 21st Birthday thats coming up in 2 weeks. Things happen and sometimes we can't do much but all I can do is think positive and know everything will be alright." -Luke
