On September 5, 2011 3 days prior to Lucas Turning 5yo our little Superman Lucas was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
On this day 6 years ago our dreams for our son were ripped from under our feet, our life was turned upside down and inside out we have since lived with fear, anxiety, uncertainty and heartbreak all whilst trying to lead a ‘normal’ family life.
Lucas is a spontaneous case in our family. The journey has been extremely difficult however with the support of our loved ones we find the strength to keep moving forward.
The fabulous five which make up ‘Team Lucas’ consists of Lucas’s parents, Mary & Harry, auntie Demmi and uncles Andy & Jason.
Lucas has so much zest for life, his smile lights up every room, his heart is full of love and the fire in his belly makes him a true fighter! He has touched the life of so many people and leaves footprints in the hearts of those he meets.
We are walking for Lucas and all boys diagnosed with DMD.
The pain we will experience in our legs does not compare to the pain the boys experience everyday. The everyday struggle to walk and run and keep up with their peers, the want to play soccer or any sport only becomes more challenging until it is taken away from them!
We will do whatever it takes to support the organisation supporting Lucas and all boys- Save Our Sons Duchenne Australia gives us hope and support like no other organisation around the world.
Hope that one day a diagnosis of Duchenne does not mean the loss of a beloved family member!
