Love for Luca
Luca's family needs your help now!
11-year-old Luca Iacono has been fighting rhabdomyosarcoma since August 18, 2017. Please read the below from his amazing mom Michele.
“To say that the last two years have turned our lives upside down and truly devastated us is obviously an understatement. I find myself at times quiet, just watching my son, absorbing the sound of his laughter, watching the way his eyes light up when he smiles, and running around and playing with his friends. I am trying to hold onto every memory now. While I used to fear that my MS would cause me to not see my son grow old, I now fear that my son may not be given the chance to grow old.
I have to believe that Luca is going to beat this illness that no child should ever have to face. We told him that he needs to face cancer with the same determination to win as he does towards all of his sports and this child is fiercely determined. Even while this cancer was growing inside of him (and beginning to spread); while his lung filled with fluid and collapsed, he still played!
Luca didn't need us to tell him how to face cancer. Instead, he has taught us that it is more about living life despite his diagnosis. He hasn't once let cancer stop him from doing what he loves, define him, or break his spirit. There's no fight against cancer because Luca has already won."
