Our Little Celebrity

It has been recommended that we get Miss Mia her own personal agent. Of course Dave just wants to know if we get a cut of her celebrity earnings!!!!

Mia's success story has captivated so many, not just her her mom and dad :), that it seems to be spreading over the web, in newsletters, etc. She just brings smiles wherever she goes. So, here is her line up!

In March, she earned a place on the U of R website under "Patients in the Spotlight": http://www.urmc.rochester.edu/childrens-hospital/giving/patients/MiaFallone.cfm . The annual Stroll for Strong Kids is in full fundraising mode. Mia's Marchers will participate for the third year and we hope to be bigger and better than ever!!! So far we already have a team of 26 and we still have two months to expand. If you would like to join our team, here is that link: http://www.helpmakemiracles.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&eventID=800&teamID=9304. The more the merrier!

Also in March, Mia's story was featured in the Daystar newsletter. Daystar, for those who don't know, is a one of a kind daycare for medically fragile children. We absolutely LOVE, LOVE the phenomenal care she receives and the beautiful staff that work there. They also are gearing up for an annual fundraiser, the Daystar Derby, where Dave and I will speak on their behalf. We will share the stage with all four of our children and our older two may have a few things to say as well. Today when I picked Mia up, one lovely woman who works there had taken this picture with her phone. Yes, they take pictures and videos of all her great moments and milestones so we don't miss them! I mean......what daycare does that? Besides, look how happy she is! Here is the link to "Celebrating the Many Miracles of Mia": http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxkYXlzdGFyaG9tZW9yZ3xneDo3MTUzYzFkZGE4NGU4YmU5&pli=1 You can find Derby information there as well. Tomorrow Dave and I will participate in a promotional video produced by Dixon Schwabl. I'm not excited to be on camera but I am excited to share our awesome experience at Daystar with others! Although it has not happened yet, we have been asked to speak with a reporter from the Webster Post about Mia's success. So, stay tuned for more ......
