My names Lucas, Im 13 years old, I live in a small city in Virginia. I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when I was 2 years old. I have had several surgeries in order to be able to walk without braces or assistance. As I got a little older; the doctors found a cyst in my brain that has now moved and can not be removed. It caused me to have seizures and change my eyesight. Playing sports is out of the question for me at this point. They say it's too dangerous! Just this fall; I was diagnosed with yet another disease: Crohns. People always ask me if I feel okay and for me; I have good days and bad days but I know that God has my back...I keep running and fighting everyday. I became very close with the University of Virginia Football team when I was only 4 years old. You can google my name and see lots of stories from local telelvision station where stories have been done about me and the team. Just this year; I was honored by Coach London to write the team's speech for the 2011 football season! I have the closest group of brothers in my life....Marques "Biscuit" Hagans is my big brother! He has been close to me since the age of 4 and has never stopped being in my life! People all around say I am the #1 fan of the greatest group of guys...UVA Wahoos! Just this year; I also got to go see a basketball game too....I bleed orange and blue through and through
Thanks for becoming a fan. Keep up the good work.
