Arizona Ambassador Family

 

 

Luke Lubbering and his family

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. Please join them for March for Babies Phoenix 2021.
