Hello all...

This is not Luke’s Mom. I’m a Friends of Karen staffer with a brief update on Luke, as the last posted update was about a year and a half ago.

We recently had the chance to see Luke at the kick-off for an event called North Rockland Sports Day, an annual event that raises funds for Friends of Karen and other worthy causes.

As you can see from this photo of Luke with his mom Nicole, he looks GREAT!! When we asked Luke if he had anything to say, he shared that he’s feeling great. He also said thank you to everyone for “giving me so much help.”

Friends of Karen is celebrating 40 years of love, compassion and support to families caring for a child with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.
