Team Luke! Give and receive the blessing of knowing you are helping Luke walk! Thank you for your prayers, thoughts and support!

We are raising funds for Luke to cover Luke's medical costs. In addition to medical we are hoping to raise enough funds for Luke to receive RGO's to assist him with walking. Luke suffers from Spina Bifida Mylomeningocele (L4), Hydrocephalus, Chiari II Malformation, Strabismus and a significant size Syrinx.

To provide you with some history...Luke has undergone seven surgeries so far all which were required to to correct the issues noted above. He has regular MRI's, CAT Scans, PT, OT and Speech. He sees about 13 different specialist for his conditions. Luke just rec'd his wheelchair on December 21, 2011! He uses a Stander with wheelchair wheels, Parapod, Scooter Board and Parallel Bars. He army crawls and is not able to bear weight without the use of the equipment. Luke wears full AFO's to stabilize his feet in addition to glasses for far sightedness and Strabismus.

Luke is the true blessing to our lives! Thru our experiences with Luke our mission has began! Our goal is to bring hope to other families who suffer from similar conditions as well as educate our community on Spina Bifida. We hosted our first Spina Bifida Awareness Day 2011 in September and had a huge response! You can read about the next Spina Bifida Awareness Day in the Charlotte area as well as read details about our story at: http://www.wix.com/spinabifidaawareness/spinabifidaawareness.
