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.

A very sincere Thank You to all those able to donate or offer other kind gestures. The money donated will be used to help with medical and travel associated expenses.

-Gale "TJ" & Lucas' Railroad Family

Lucas has completed his 7th round of Chemo and will now be enjoying some sunshine while waiting to head to Seattle, WA for testing. Please keep him in your prayers! He is one tough kid!

As of Monday 3/20/17. His numbers were down again. We had a 312 this week, down from the 720 last week. They are going to do a few more tests but the general statement is, his immune system is just tired. His bone marrow biopsy came back from when we were inpatient, and the doctors were pleased, it showed no abnormalities. So, now we just keep waiting.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to give you a brief update. Lucas is at the tail end of phase four of his chemo treatments. He and his Dad stopped by yesterday; he was on good spirits and soaking up all the love from his friends at the railroad. His next round begins on December 27th. Please continue to keep Lucas and his family in your thoughts and prayers, and please, do share this page. A sincere Thank You to all who have contributed and shared! Happy Holidays!
