Lucas Hembree, is clearly a fighter, he has a genetic disorder called, Sanfilippo syndrome, and his doctors didn’t think he would make it to ten years old, but we’re less than a week away from Lucas celebrating his 13th birthday. His father, says last year was particulary rough for Lucas, with him getting pneumonia and his service dog passing away, add that to him becoming a teenager, his parents wanted to make this birthday extra special for Lucas and are asking any and everyone to send him cards for his birthday.
