Lukes medical expenses and travel

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to help raise money for Luke's ongoing medical expenses as well as travel and accommodation for Luke and for me to keep Eli close.

Luke is one of the nicest people you could ever meet. He goes above and beyond for everyone he loves and lives to make people smile. He has more close friends than anyone I've ever met and for good reason. He always makes an effort to see people and have a good time because that's the type of friend he is. The light of his life is our baby boy Eli. Luke is an amazing dad and being sick and away from his little boy has been the hardest thing for him out of all of this.

Luke was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) which is quite rare in adults. You can read about the disease here: Leukemia Foundation

Along with ALL, he has also been diagnosed as Philadelphia Positive which occurs in about 1 in 4 adult ALL patients.

Luke is being treated at Nepean Hospital under a professor that he has a lot of faith in. He is currently undergoing intense Chemotherapy which will hopefully result in him going into remission. This Chemo causes him to have little to no immune system which means it is too risky to take kids (Eli) near him during the times when he is most vulnerable.

When he is not so vulnerable, we want Luke to be able to see Eli whenever he is feeling up to it. Unfortunately, the travel and expenses of taking Eli to Sydney are too great for me to handle on my own. This is part of the reason I am trying to raise money. We also don't know yet what the costs associated with Luke's treatment are going to be so any help we get will be going towards that.

Thank you to anyone who is able to help us with this. Every little bit will help and it will mean the world to Luke to be able to see his boy whenever possible and to have help with medical costs.
