Thankful Thursday ~ From Miles to Miracles: Travel Adventures of Young Luka to Rare Disease Treatment

Today, we share the inspiring story of Luka, a courageous young boy from Maine who is facing Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Luka’s journey has been filled with challenges, but his resilience and determination continue to shine through, embodying the spirit of hope and perseverance.

DMD is a severe type of muscular dystrophy characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. For Luka, this means a life filled with obstacles that require specialized medical care. Despite the daunting nature of his condition, Luka remains a beacon of strength, facing each day with unwavering resolve.

To receive the specialized care he needs, Luka must travel to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. This hospital provides the expert medical attention essential for managing DMD. However, the journey to Columbus is neither easy nor affordable, posing a significant barrier for Luka and his family.

This crucial journey would not be possible without the support of compassionate individuals like you. The generous contributions from the Alexion Charitable Foundation and our dedicated volunteer pilots play a pivotal role in making these trips a reality. Through the efforts of Angel Flight NE, Luka can access the life-saving treatments he needs without the added burden of travel expenses.
