Team Lukkarinen was formed in honor of our son, Ryan Lukkarinen. Ryan was initially diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 2. Ryan was treated for a brain tumor at Duke in February 2005 and has been tumor free since. We are celebrating Ryan's 16 year anniversary of being tumor free in 2021! Team Lukkarinen continues to give back and help others by raising funds for brain tumor research at Duke. Please join us in this fight.
Be an angel and join me at the 2021 Angels Among Us 5K and Family Fun Walk to find a cure for brain tumors.
A brain tumor diagnosis will ripple across your entire life. Priorities shift. Every moment becomes more meaningful. Relationships become more loving. Time more precious.
At the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke, they understand how overwhelming a brain tumor diagnosis can be and they are passionate about understanding the "how" and "why" of brain tumors. But they need our support to push their research forward at a faster rate to find a cure.
Help me find a cure! Join with me so no other family must endure the pain of having a loved one diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Thank you for your support. Your gift puts us closer to the goal of finding a cure for brain tumors.
