Luke Phillips was only 11 years old when he lost his mom to cancer. His life would change again just two years later when a tragic motorcycle accident left him in a coma and claimed his dad’s life. Luke had no idea of his dad’s fate before an operation to remove part of his foot. But on his road to recovery, his older brother, Nathan, made the biggest decision of his life.
Losing a parent is devastating for anyone at any age. But when Luke lost his mom to cancer in 2016 he was only 11 years old. Anita Phillips was 53 when she succumbed to her illness. She left behind Luke, her older son Nathan, and husband, David.
