Luke Lubbering

Too many families have babies that are born too soon…….1 in 10 babies are born prematurely in Arizona and Luke Lubbering and his identical twin brother, Logan are two of those. Luke and Logan’s mom was diagnosed with Polyhydramnios leading to Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS). TTTS is a rare disease that only affects identical twins. The twin boys shared a placenta and TTTS is a disease of the placenta so what happens to one baby affects both of the twins. Luke was born first weighing two pounds. His brother, Logan was born one minute later weighing 10.9 ounces. During this time there was no medical equipment small enough to assist Logan. His parents were told that his lungs could explode if he was intubated. Logan lived for 1 hour and 23 minutes while Luke spent 66 days in the NICU fighting for his life. Luke is now ten years old and since the day he was born he has exhibited his strong will to live. He and his family have become very passionate for volunteering and fundraising for March of Dimes/March for Babies to show their gratitude for all of the years of scientific research, medical advancements and support for families. They are honored to serve as the 2021 March for Babies Arizona Ambassador Family and are proud to be giving back to an organization whose mission is inspired by all babies, those born healthy and those who need help to survive and thrive. Luke’s family humbly asks you to consider joining their team and giving a meaningful gift in honor of Luke and in memory of Logan. Please visit their March for Babies Arizona Team at: www.marchforbabies.org/team/heavenandearthtwins They look forward to you joining them for March for Babies Arizona!
