Helping the Country and His Family

By Cooper M

About My Dad

The MS society is run by a board of trustees, like the city of Wilmette. Each state has their own individual board to run the organization. Last year my Dad, my hero, was appointed to be one of those trustees. It was a great honor for him and excited to help the cause. Since then he has raised over twenty-thousand dollars. On March 16th 2016 he traveled to Washington DC to speak with the Illinois senate and house members about a bill to lower medication cost. The dinner of champions is a very formal event hosted by the MS society and my Dad and mom were asked to speak during the event. So to finish it, my hero has help a lot of people and accomplished a lot in two years, more than the average person.
