Lucas’ Helping Hands Advocacy Program’s mission is to provide educational, emotional, and financial support to families and their children struggling through a life-threatening disease, illness or disability.
Lucas’ Helping Hands fund was created in honor of Lucas, a young boy living in Rochester. The fund was started to raise money for a special bed for Lucas to keep him safe at night. From there, the family continued with multiple fundraisers each year to help not only Lucas but also other families with some of the specialized medical supplies needed. The fund has helped local families with gas cards, electric bills, strollers, adaptive clothing, medical supplies, and more.
