Close friends and patients of Cosmedica may have learned or heard of baby Luke, grandson to our Nursing Services Director, Maureen. Sweet Luke was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis days after birth. Recently, adding an altogether new level of stress and struggle to Luke’s parents Kristy and Dustin, Luke’s safe family home was destroyed due to a fire on May 28th. The family is now displaced.
Many have asked about ways to help and support the family as they rebuild their lives and find a home to rent. Luke has very specific needs for his environment and for his care, and so the following list and fundraising page will assist the family in replacing lost items and affording his costly medications.
If you care to help, you can make a donation via: gofundme.com/RoyalOakWilliamsFireFund
