LOVE FOR LUCA

We have officially hit halfway on our Radiation stage of treatment! 15 down 15 to go, and he’s rocking the hairless look if I do say so myself 

mARCH 12, 2021

Over the last two days, Luca’s hair decided it was time to go, oh boy was it going… on his pillow in his eyes, up to his nose, and all over me! So tonight, his cousin and uncle took care of that for him.  

He’s truly in good spirits about the hair loss itself, but he is having huge sensitivity to his actual scalp. We’ve had plenty of tears this week from Mum and Luca, but that’s just us processing our new environment

Ever wondered what it looks like to have radiation done? Luca is doing so well having this done every single day…

We are on week 2 of 6. But Luca still cruises through it so calmly. 

I really don’t know how he does it!

We’ve had plenty of ups and downs…this is no walk in the park. From refusing to eat to vomiting. Luca’s hair begins to fall out, to him needing to sleep for hours during the day to constant physio, OT, and Specialists’ endless appointments.

However, we are choosing to find the positives in our new world. It is what keeps us going each day, finding something to laugh at or a spontaneous trip to the corner store. All we can do is help him smile each day, we don’t win every day, but we always have the next day to try again.

The family has today received a detailed diagnosis in regards to Luca’s condition.
Unfortunately, It is a grade 4 Medulloblastoma, in a nutshell, brain cancer and an aggressive one at that. The Surgeons have found some growths on his spine as well. All up, they are looking at 40 weeks’ worth of treatment.
Six weeks of radiation and then seven cycles of chemotherapy. Today’s news is heartbreaking, and it seems poor Luca can’t catch a break.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Sarah, Phil, Luca, and Dylan at this time; our little soldier needs all the prayers, well wishes, strength, and love he can get sent his way to fight this!
