Lucas’ parents and grandparents were already waiting for their son to arrive at Toowoomba Hospital where he was then airlifted to Lady Cilento. 

His mother Kathy said the team there ‘were amazing’ but there was nothing more that they could do for their ‘brave little boy’. 

He died surrounded by all of his loved ones which she explains they are all so thankful for.

‘We still do not understand why he didn’t wake from his sleep on Thursday morning but we are so thankful for the team who resuscitated him so that we could have our time to say goodbye,’ his mother Kathy said.

The family now want to give back to the ‘amazing organisations’ who made it possible for Lucas’ loved ones to spend some precious time with their special baby before he passed away. 

‘We wish to support Queensland Ambulance Service, Toowoomba Base Hospital, Life Flight, Lady Cilento ICU & Ronald McDonald House.’
