Lukas is a seventeen year old battling Lymphoma. For his Bear Hug, Lukas, an avid baseball player, decided instead of using the $500 budget on himself, he wanted to give the gift of baseball to a team in need. Deeply touched by Lukas’ request, we reached out to our friends at the Chicago White Sox to see if they could help us plan a special day for Lukas in addition to his donation. Similarly moved by Lukas’ selflessness, the White Sox not only agreed to host his family in a suite for a game, but contributed thousands of dollars in equipment to Lukas’ donation.
On September 27th, Lukas gifted Lost Boyz, Inc. 60 baseball gloves, 200 baseballs, and $2,000 worth of other equipment.
Thank you White Sox, Lost Boyz, and especially Lukas for being an inspiration to us all!
