Lucas is our Dribble for the Cure Honorary Team Captain! Lucas was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at the young age of 7 months old. He was treated at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital over the course of a year. It was a very difficult year for him and his family, but thanks to the wonderful team of doctors, nurses, and staff, Lucas is in remission and thriving!
Lucas is now 10 years old and in 5th grade. He is an excellent student and even made the Principal’s List at school! and loves to read and write. He is very creative and enjoys making videos, writing comics, building Legos, and playing Minecraft. Lucas also enjoys spending time with his family going on camping trips, riding roller coasters at Magic Mountain, watching Marvel movies, and going on “adventures.” He looks up to his big brother Bradley, loves to swim, and enjoys acting. He inspires so many people daily with his contagious smile, courageous spirit and love of life.
Lucas is a proud Dribble for the Cure Honorary Captain and looks forward to the event each year! He has helped raise funds to support the research at the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital, the hospital that he was treated at! Join Lucas and other patients and families next year at the 13th Annual Dribble for the Cure at UCLA.
