This is the fifth Home Run for Life game of the 2022 season. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by Horizon Transport to benefit Beacon Children’s Hospital.
Recently, The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Luis his wish with the pomeranian puppy.
In February of 2020, walking without balance, vomiting, and experiencing dizziness at school, his mother Claudia rushed him to Beacon Memorial Hospital in South Bend for a brain scan.
“It was the worst day of my life. I was afraid he could die,” said Claudia.
Their worst fears had come true. Luis was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer called malignant neoplasm of the cerebellum.
His first bout of radiation commenced shortly thereafter with chemotherapy treatments wrapping up in December of that year.
Luis is now in remission and continues to get MRI scans every three months.
