Luke was adopted by Chelsey in 2013 after being in a longtime foster home. Chelsey adopted him, knowing he had cancer. She sent a picture along with these comments: We adopted Lukie from you on June 8th, 2013 . . . He had cancer which we knew about and we had to make the tough decision tonight to put him down. His lungs and heart just couldn’t handle it any more. He did get one last car ride though which he loves.
