Not only am I proud to know you two, but also I consider it a great privilage to have been a part of your lives. Your giving nature, which is so like your mom, enables you to stand out and shine. People like you make such a difference in all the lives you touch. I am sure the children appreciate all you do for them. Keep up your wonderful work. Mrs. Lukaszewski

Deanna & Miles-You both are an inspiration to all of your fellow classmates at DHS and some of the staff and teachers as well! God bless you on your trip. You are both great kids and your mom is awesome! Have a great trip and know that your DHS family is very proud of you. Can't wait to hear stories about your trip and how well you both did. Lots of love, Mrs. Brady

Deanna ~ I am really proud of you and Miles. Everytime I turn around, you and your brother are taking on new adventures and fighting for a new cause. I admire you and your enthusiastic and caring nature. You are a bright shining star ~ (OK... and so is Miles!) Anyway, I wish you a trip that is fun and filled with memorable experiences. Speak from your heart and help the members of Congress understand the needs of all kids with health care issues. Love, Norma Liburd

It's several years since you were suffering from scoliosis. Thank goodness there are doctors available for diagnosis and treatment. You can now lead a healthy, normal life. Obviously, you have grown into the responsible young adult we knew you would be. We appreciate you for being in Washington to emphasize the need to continue to support the health of children and young people.
Have fun and bring back all your experiences to share with us!!

Fran Sellet

Deanna, okay so maybe I clicked on the wrong Marinello child to get to you.... but I just checked and didn't see a comment here from me.
You are one fantastic kid; and now, a beautiful young lady. Stay as sweet as you are and be inspirational to those around you. I am proud of you for the time and effort you have given for All Childrens. You and your family are phenomenal!
Love always,

Scott Wegscheid

Miles & Deanna, I received this e-mail from your Dad who I know from college. I haven't seen either of you since a trip to FSU for a football game many years ago. I had no idea that either of you had health problems since I hadn't seen you in so long. I'm so happy that both of you are doing so well. I do hope that you are successfull in helping out All Childrens Hospital. 2 years ago we had a granddaughter who had a brain tumor and she spent time at All Childrens and the staff, doctors, surgeons and everyone was absolutely wonderful and today, she is well and growing up just like you two to be a great person. We support all that you are going there to do and will pray that you have a safe and successful trip. Love you Scott & Susan Wegscheid

Deanna & Miles,

It is heartwarming to see two young people so eager & willing to give support to such an important issue as children's healthcare.
You both will be excellent representatives of ACH and are supporting a wonderful cause.
Stay strong, take care & have fun!

Hey young lady,

I am proud of the way you and your family are so close. You have one of the sweetest dispositions of any young lady your age.
