Fun on the Farm with Luke

As some of you may remember I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful little boy named Luke, and his family back in October 2009 and again when we stopped into visit him at the hospital not long after. Luke was in the midst of a battle for his life  – one that he is winning today. And excerpt from his blog for family and friends…

“Luke was diagnosed with Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ph+ ALL) on October 2nd, 2008.  He was 16 months old.  Luke is now 4 1/2.  He completed his 3 yr protocol in September of this year.  Luke’s cancer level as of Nov, 2011, was still detectable.  Luke continues on a drug targeted at the PH+ which we hope and pray will keep the cancer at bay or better yet make it disappear.”

I am so grateful for the  privilege of meeting him and his family – so blessed to be able to watch him grow up and see how much he changed since we first met. I am exited for him that he now knows full fun days without the pain and burdens of cancer treatments and hospitals. That he is able to enjoy God’s creation – to get outside and play with his friend and family. The following pictures are from a special day in the fall when we went to the Apple Barn together on a filed trip and I was able to capture a few images of Luke dong just that.

If you are the praying kind – I ask you to continue to pray for this beautiful boy and his family – that they will have many more days, weeks, months and years TOGETHER like this one.
