This year has marked the ninth year he has participated in the MS Walk event. In fact this year he and his Team raised $4,813 for the Multiple Sclerosis Program in Maine. He alone raised $4,598. His Team consisted of seven members, and this years walk was a five mile walk in Kennebunkport. Our council brother also spent 20 hours as a phone volunteer , and enjoyed every minute of it. Our council brother is also on a very strict and expensive injection program for his illness. The injections he takes weekly, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday cost $6,000 a month. He is fortunate thou that he does get Insurance assistance in paying for this medication. Our brother keeps involved in his life, and has a very positive outlook toward maintaining this illness and enjoy life to its fullest. This year Brother Frank has stepped up to become our new council Advocate. Thanks to the overwhelming support of his Family and Friends it is working.
