In the area of Tragedy Assistance, Live Like Luke (LLL) was able to help families due to YOUR support:
o A family lost their mother to a 5-year battle with breast cancer and LLL provided a night to remember for the family on Christmas Eve, including a helicopter ride over the Kansas City Country Club Plaza lights. The dad texted the next day and said, "Live Like Luke is exactly what my family needed."
o A family lost their mother to suicide and LLL provided a weekend for her 5 children at the Great Wolf Lodge right before Christmas, including a night at Dave and Busters! The children were smiles from ear to ear being at the Great Wolf Lodge and playing games and Dave and Busters.
o LLL provided the Rose Brooks Center 100 stocking stuffers for Christmas
o LLL provided 75 stocking stuffers to the Overland Park Regional Hospital for children and their siblings admitted to the ER and NICU. Play-doh was a huge hit!
o LLL adopted a family for Christmas of 6. The mom is pregnant with their 5th child and a high risk pregnancy and unable to work. The dad sustained injuries at work and unable to work. The parents were devastated that they would not be able to provide anything for their 4 children for Christmas. LLL stepped in and provided Christmas dinner and presents for the entire family. The family was extremely grateful for the assistance during the holidays.
o LLL provided financial assistance to young couple whose 18 month old child passed away unexpectedly. This was their first child and were unable to afford the cost of the funeral.
