“Tucker was a fighter, defying the odds of his diagnosis. God gave us 37 weeks and three days with Tucker. Not only did he have purposeful movements, but he kicked, yawned, and stole our hearts. He held the “I Love You” sign on his little hand during many ultrasounds, and even after he was born. We thank God for his life and for these special moments with him. Tucker‘s life has touched many people and his story lives on.”
Tucker’s family would like to thank each and every one who has supported them during this journey, including their church family, their community, Community Hospice Peds Care and the Liam Lives Foundation.
