Sweet Little Man Luca Harmon's family and friends are uniting to help with his battle against a very rare form of cancer called AT/RT
Luca is just an innocent child...He woke up one day and played as usual but later that afternoon he suffered a seizure and within hours of arriving at the hospital...his parents were told that their 19 month old son had a brain tumor. The doctors said they should hope for the best and to expect the worst. How horrifying this must have been for them. Three days later Luca had brain surgery to remove the tumor and to run test to determine the type of cancer they were dealing with results were he had At/RT. A very rare form of cancer one that only 10% of children under age 2 survive. Luca now has a port in his tiny chest to receive his chemo treatments through, a shunt in his head for fluid to drain, and a feeding tube so he can eat. This once energetic outgoing beach loving baby boy now has his playtime in his hospital bed. His parents are outstanding and right by his side where they need to be. His mother Jessica is from Atlanta and Jeff from Richmond Indiana. They moved to Clearwater Florida over a year ago for Jeff's job. Jessica is due July 11 with their second child a little girl. So while being there by Luca side...Jeff lost his job for choosing to be there for his son and wife. They do not want people to help them financially just prays and support. But with Lucas's little sister coming into this world within a week and no insurance or income...they are going to need it. Please let's help Luca and his parents fight this battle. No parent should ever have to chose between spending what could be some of last moments with their child. With Layla arriving soon Jeff must be there for Luca. Little Luca is such a fighter and he continues to show improvement. Stay Strong Luca....please help out and pray for this young family.
