"De Jong rink doin' it for Lucas"

'Cancer strikes young curler just weeks before Coastal playdowns'

"About three weeks ago, Luc just wasn't feeling right,'' said Marc Lucas, Luc's grandfather. "He was very listless and not eating which is very unusual for him. He can sometimes sit down and eat an entire pizza by himself.

"The doctors did many tests and they thought it was a virus. They sent him over to Vancouver and he was in isolation for two weeks before they found the cancer. They still don't know what type it is but Luc is a fighter. We are prepared the worst, but hope for the best.''

"Since he has been in the hospital, all he talks about is his team kicking butt at these playdowns,'' said Brenda Lucas, his grandmother. "He also talks about coming back and playing with the team again. The guys on the team are friends all year, not just during the curling season. Luc is a fighter and I'm sure he will rebound.''
This was Luc's fourth year of curling and it would have been his first time to the junior playdowns.
