Steve & Cody: When Dominick was in the hospital, he was battling for his life. He was in constant pain from the tumor and excruciating pain from bladder spasms. He was stronger, braver and more courageous then anyone I have ever experienced in my lifetime. He never complained, he followed every instruction from the doctors, nurses and his parents. Even when in pain, he would make little jokes to cheer his mom and dad up. While going through a bladder spasm, he was in such pain, Bill, his father, was at the bedside crying. Dominick looked up and said “this is no time for crying”, and the nurse turned and said to Dominick, “its ok Dominick, you can cry if you want to”, Dominick turned to the nurse and said “I’m not talking about me, I am talking about my dad!!!”. Dominick maintained his sweet, caring and fun loving personality all through this trying ordeal. I can only hope to have the strength and courage this 11 year old boy had in his life. God Bless Dominick Luchesi and his mom and dad, Bill and Angie Luchesi.
