OUR STORY, OUR MISSION
On November 10, 2006, our son Luca was born with a lethal form of skeletal dysplasia called short rib-polydactyly syndrome. When Luca was first diagnosed, we searched tirelessly for a way to save him. We found none. As a result, he died in our arms 90 minutes after his birth. In his memory, we started The Luca John Foundation, which is dedicated to curing for skeletal dysplasia and supporting grieving families in need.
The Luca John Foundation Impact
The Luca John Foundation – No family should be alone in times of unimaginable grief.
We help families who have lost an infant child (12 months or younger), by alleviating their emotional and financial suffering through providing support and compassion as well as assistance with funeral/burial expenses.
As volunteers for The Luca John Foundation, we fully subscribe to the vision and mission of this caring organization. We are here to help families who suffer due to the loss of their child. This gives us meaning and purpose and allows us to volunteer from the heart. We believe in the power of giving love and support to families in need.
