THE STORY:

Deborah Johnson wrote -

Lucas Reiling is in the fight of his life and needs our help.  Fitness to End This is our way to help.  We are asking that during the month of June, you dedicate one of your workouts to raising money for Lucas.  Events will be happening across the country, in the San Francisco Bay Area, NYC, and New Jersey.  If each of us raises $500-$1000, we can, in one month raise over $100,000 which will go directly to Lucas' care.

If asked to give the definition of courage, strength, fortitude, one would need not look further than 6-year-old Lucas Reiling. Lucas has been fighting brain cancer for most of his young life. He was diagnosed with multiple tumors in his brain stem, a few weeks before his second birthday. Since being diagnosed, he has endured; brain surgery, two rounds of chemotherapy(15 months each), port surgery, bouts with life-threatening viruses, and numerous hospital stays. Along the way he has been poked, prodded and subjected to seemingly endless tests. Lucas’ grace and courage is almost unimaginable for someone of his age. The tumors affect all aspects of his everyday life.

Lucas has many needs that far exceed what insurance will cover. Such as: Home health aide, Oxygen Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Equine Therapy, Walkers, Strollers, and Push Chairs, Tutors, Alternative treatments: chiropractic, acupuncture and Reiki

For the past few years, Lucas'mother, Amy, has tirelessly fundraised for research for brain cancer and now we must do the same for Lucas. With your help and support, Lucas' parents, Amy and Joseph, will have the tools to give Lucas the best possible quality of life.
