10-year-old Lucas needs transplant in fight against leukemia
Parkland County is coming together to help ease the financial burden on one of its own.
Lisa Iwanyk's 10 year old son Lucas has been battling a rare form of Leukemia.
Her colleagues at the Ministry of Agriculture's office in Stony Plain are holding a craft bake sale December 6 from 11-2, at the provincial building beside the courthouse on 44 Avenue.
The fundraiser will include things like baked goods, hot dogs, and drinks, with all proceeds from it going to help the family's medical costs.
Monika Warring is one of Lisa's colleagues, and says that Lucas' illness has had an impact on many in the community.
Lucas will have to relocate from Spruce Grove to Calgary with his family for at least 4 months, to seek more treatment and get a bone marrow transplant.
