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.
This is my family in Arizona. It was the first trip we took with my mom after she got out of rehab.
This is a band that my dad would where all the time, where ever he went.
Here my dad is with my mom giving a presentation at an event called the Dinner of Champions.
This was the sign they had at the dinner saying a little about it.
Here my dad is with a person with MS getting ready to talk to the Illinois congressmen about lowering MS medication cost.
This is a sign that we had put in front of our house when my mom came back home.
