Marlana Miceli
FOUNDER

Founder of LLF and Luca's mom. I believe in fairness and equality amongst all children, no matter how different their abilities are. My mission in life is to leave a positive mark on the world and to make a difference in the special needs community. Genetic disorders are challenging enough and I hope that LLF helps to bring happiness to other families similar to mine.

CHAIR

I work in Human Resources and I have a huge passion for treating all with compassion and equality. Meeting Luca has helped to further that passion! Inclusion is something that everyone should experience and I want to help spread and promote that! My hope is share the love and joy Luca has in his life and to pass it on to others!

TREASURER
I'm Luca's aunt! I reside in Texas with my husband, Brandon and our 9 year old son, Bryson. I am blessed to work for a company that focuses on respect for all people and that supports various organizations through volunteer and donation activities. 
While not close in distance to Luca, he is very close to my heart each and every day! I look forward to seeing LLF touch so many families across the country!

I am an ABA therapist. I have been a registered behavior technician for children with autism and other disabilities for over 4 years now. I met Luca 2 years ago when I was his in home ABA therapist. Luca truly changed my outlook on life. His strength, joy and “enjoy the simple things” personality are all contagious in the best way. I am always smiling when I am with sweet Luca.”
