Hi everyone, it is my privilege to tell you about one special little girl, sweet Lukah.

Lukah was born October 19, 2017 and instantly increased the happiness level of our world. Her smiles are contagious and she is the most carefree soul. She has blessed so many people simply by being herself.

Over the past month, Lukah has had many health struggles. What started as a trip to the emergency room late one night due to unexpected blood in her diaper has resulted in the discovery of an alarmingly large tumour that is currently pressing up against her internal organs. Lukah, her devoted parents, and her spunky older sister, B, have had their worlds rocked with this diagnosis. Due to the size of the tumour, Lukah will be having a surgery in the next week to have it removed. Though optimistic the removal of this tumour will result in many positive improvements in Lukah's health, the surgery and recovery will be extensive and tedious. Lukah is a strong girl, but her level of discomfort and overall decrease in mood and appetite recently are evidence of the daily struggle she faces until the tumour is safely removed. We are hoping that with the surgery, Lukah's blood levels will improve, she will regain her sunny disposition, and life will slowly return to normal for her family.

The village of family and friends surrounding this family is an amazing one, no doubt. That has already been proven over the past month! Lukah's parents have frequently shared how humbled they have been by everything offered to them. Lukah's family has been showered with love, support, and donations up to this point, and we all know they would be the last people to ask for financial assistance. However, the family continues to need our encouragement and support - be it kind words, offers of babysitting for B, or financial donations - to ease the stresses they face currently and will face as Lukah recovers from her surgery. Please know that any and all help is so appreciated. Lu is one amazing little girl - please keep her in your thoughts in the upcoming days and weeks!

Thank you.

Hi everyone. It is hard to believe how hard little Lu is fighting to survive. Her strength is unfathomable to those around her. The timing of this - though out of our control - is difficult for the Mitchell family. Lu's big sister turns three next week and this will be a difficult celebration without Lu there physically at the birthday party. They will also be having a unique Christmas experience with the family split up between Edmonton and Calgary. Lu continues to find ways to hold on, waiting patiently for a multi-visceral transplant. She continues to persevere through this rollercoaster; therefore, so do we. We find strength in watching her everyday.
Please continue to pray for the Mitchells as the next few weeks will be hard on their hearts. Please pray for health, strength, and trust in the path Lukah is on.
We are grateful for those who have stood behind Lukah on her journey, thank you for everything you have done.

Hello everyone and thank you for continuing to share Lukah's journey with us.
Today marks one month. One month since sweet Lu underwent her surgery to remove the tumour. One month since we have witnessed her light - her precious personality - in all it's glory. She shares glimpses of it with us, though, through her health struggles. Her twirling feet, her squeezes of your finger as you hold onto her, and her glances lovingly at her mom and dad. Lukah is still here with us and for that we CELEBRATE. One month later, her strength continues to defy odds and make us immensely proud. One month later, she is stable and thank goodness for that. One month later, she continues to await a multi-visceral transplant.
Lukah, we love you. This has been a hard month, without a doubt, but all the grief is SO worth it to see the fight and determination you have in that little body.

Below is a photo taken the day of her surgery.

As sweet Lukah continues to fight, so do we. She continues to amaze doctors with her resilience and hasn't given up yet. Please continue to follow her mom's social media pages for more consistent updates on Lukah's condition. She is pure sunshine and our world isn't ready to lose that quite yet! <3

Good morning everyone.
Thank you for continuing to share Lukah's story. She continues to fight and defy all medical odds as she holds on much longer than anyone could anticipate. We appreciate all thoughts and prayers sent the Mitchells' way at this time. As of right now, a living donor is not feasible due to the complexity of Lukah's situation. We continue to trust her timing and believe in her power.
