I think his mother said it best on her Facebook page...Tonight, we would like to tell Luke's Prayer Warriors and supporters how proud we are of you! All of you have been Amazing! You know how you have been praying for Luke to be cancer free and for those abnormal cells to disappear? Our/Your prayers were answered! Those abnormal cells disappeared! Thank you, God! Luke is cancer free! Thank you, God! Thank you, Prayer Warriors! Luke's doctor called me on our way home to tell us the final results were back from the Pathologist and that everything was Normal. Thank you, God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have several posts that I want to share with you from our recent trip, but they can wait. Nothing is more important than sharing the news of our little friend Luke (read his story here) and his family. So many of you have been supportive, said prayers and followed his story as I have shared it with you. On Monday, 100 days post-transplant, Luke and his mother (and little sister) were able to come home and join his dad and big brother. This family has been through things that most of us can't imagine and it was such a joyous feeling to know that they were finally all together again.
Then, came the big news yesterday...his tests all came back clear and the cancer is gone. His blood type is now that of his donor (isn't that interesting) and while he still can't be around a lot of people and will be taking medication (for life I think), he feels great, his hair is coming back and other than a little puffiness in his face...he looks like the Luke we all knew before he was sick.
This town has been unbelievable in their support of this young family. Strangers have been unbelievable too. This little boy has touched the hearts of many and while this journey is not over and has had terrible moments for the family, I have no doubt that they would tell you that their hearts have been so touched by the generous spirit of others. I also know that they will be the first to give back in many ways.
Please continue to pray for Luke and for his family as they try to find "normal" once again and he continues to become stronger. His family and I thank you so much for your
