~ About Luca ~
Luca Mateo Vincent was born at 24 weeks 3 days of gestation on October 8th, 2010 weighing
only 1lb and 5 ounces. He spent 43 days in the NICU until the day his parents feared; on November 20, 2010 he lost his life due to infection. While in the NICU, he received a NICU Hallowboo name tag from our 2010 fundraiser. Little did I understand at the time how much that would mean for his mom and dad, Heather and Matt. Luca was “Super Luca” for Halloween last year, and it is with him that the idea for this year’s NICU Hallowboo was struck.
