On November 10th 2006 our son Luca was born with a lethal form of skeletal dysplasia called short rib polydactyl syndrome. As a result he died an hour and a half after his birth in our arms. Shortly after this we setup The Luca John foundation, a New Jersey based 501c(3) charity. When Luca was diagnosed we looked to find a cure, a way, an option for his survival and we found none.

There are two missions of this foundation:
  • Provide the medical community the funds it needs to increase the survivability and quality of life of children diagnosed with all forms of skeletal dysplasia.
  • To provide financial assistance for funeral expenses to families who have experienced a loss of an infant child at 12 months or younger, or a stillbirth.
