Although we will never be able to fully repay those people who
have assisted us with our Kidney of Tomorrow, we would like to mention
their names here. We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to
the NSTA and Toshiba Corporation for giving us this opportunity. We are
really enjoying our cameras! Thanks to our parents who have been our
main support system through the whole project. Mrs. Williams, thank you
for sharing your wonderful artistic talent with us! Dr. Williams, thank you
for proofing our website and finding glitches. Dr. & Mrs. Kampman, thank
you for putting up with us as we moved into your house during Easter
break. Mrs. Kampman, you are a twelve star chef, many thanks! Thank
you to Mr. & Mrs. Quinn for all your support and computer programs.
Thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Pileggi for the rides, treats, and support. We
would also like to thank our science teacher, Mrs. McClennen, for all her
ideas and support. Jim Ebner was our computer lifeline, and we are
forever grateful for the hours of coaching he gave us over the phone. We
would also like to thank Cousin Mike(MIA), you really helped us a lot
and we couldn't have done it without you! We want to extend our
appreciation to the faculty and students of Merion Mercy Academy for all
their encouragement and kind words. Thank you to everyone who was
involved, we really appreciate your love and support!
