Hi, my name is Luke and I’m a 39-year-old living in Boronia, Victoria (Australia). From an early age, my interests gravitated towards gaming, family, cars, and technology, each playing a significant role in shaping who I am today.
I was diagnosed on good friday with terminal cancer, I was told I only had weeks to live and with treatment it would only extend my life by a few months. I have three young boys, a young adult son and partner. My diagnosis and all that has happened since my diagnosis has been really tough on them and it has broken all our worlds. On anzac day I crashed and was told I had hours to live, they came and said goodbye to me on my death bed, it has been an emotionally traumatic experience for them over and over.
I have an aggressive form of non small cell metastatic carcinoma. It’s everywhere in my brain, lungs, throat, all through my body.
I have now been told it is not curable only manageable with Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy and amazing technology like Gamma Knife Radiation Surgery to shrink the 7+ brain tumors.
Although my circumstances have changed drastically, my passion for technology and gaming remains undiminished. My YouTube channel now serves as a beacon of strength, showcasing not only my ongoing battle but also the importance of cherishing every moment life offers. Through the ups and downs, I strive to inspire others with my unwavering determination and to remind them that even in the face of adversity, there is always room for courage, love, and the pursuit of joy.
Medical expenses, (travel, medications, equipment hire etc) are ridiculously expensive and it’s put my family and I under severe financial, mental and emotional strain.
