This site was created in memory of Luke Nylen. Luke received countless pints of blood during his 19 years. He passed away on November 26, 2016 from complications due to his Congenital Heart Disease. 

 

We want to bring awareness for the needs for  blood donation. With the gifts of blood Luke received, he was able to lead a very full life.  

 

Our wish now is to give back to others in need for blood and blood products so they may continue to receive the gift of life.

aboutLUKE

Luke was a lifelong patient at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. He had five open heart surgeries and 14 procedures in his 19 years. His first procedure was when he was two days old; it was a miracle he survived due to initial complications.  Two days later, he had his first open heart surgery. 

 

This was when Luke received his first gifts of blood. He received countless pints of blood during his life.  

On the Friday after Thanksgiving 2016, Luke passed out suddenly after attending a Nashville Predators game with his family. He was rushed to Vanderbilt where they tried all night to bring him back, however they couldn't.

Luke led a robust life with friends, family and lots of fun. Luke loved the Predators, the outdoors, boating and kicking up mud in his truck. He was especially proud to have been made a full time employee at FedEx Freight.
