would not be going home with her from the NICU.
She slammed her hands on the table
and said, “we are not going to let him die!”

She then held me and prayed!

You would fight to save your baby too, right?

Perhaps You are Willing to Help Me Fund the Cure

Hi, I'm Lucas!

I was born with a rare genetic condition with no medical cure, Nonketotic hyperglycinemia, or NKH. This condition is SO rare that it's considered an "orphan disease,” this means it affects so few people in the world (500 for NKH), that there is little to no funding for research to cure it! You can learn more about my story here. NKH causes many challenges with development, seizures, autism, cerebral palsy, and CVI blindness. 

Research funds are left solely to the parents, and families of those affected, and cures do not run cheap! In fact, gene replacement therapy is the only real medical cure being researched for NKH, and the projected cost is three million dollars!

Kids Can't-Wait for a Cure Campaign!

My family is praying for a miracle. The goal is to raise $3 million dollars for gene therapy! We started the 3 million dollar campaign with the hope of connecting with 3 million people to give $1.00 to help me fund the cure. Will you give at least $1.00 and share my story with a friend? You can change my world, and 500 children worldwide with NKH, plus countless more in the future who have or will be born with NKH!

Pledge today and help me, please?

Together we can all donate $1.00 and share with a friend or two, right?
