BOARD MEMBER

Emily’s youngest son, Matthew (pictured on right), was diagnosed with ALD when he was 7 years old after suffering from a near-fatal adrenal crisis. Emily and her husband, Troy, decided to enroll Matthew in the Lorenzo’s Oil Study at Kennedy Krieger in Baltimore, MD that summer in 2011. Matthew continues to have clear MRIs and takes the Oil and lowfat diet like a champ. Fortunately, Emily’s two older sons and daughter did not inherit the ALD gene. Emily is committed to supporting research to find a cure for ALD and other diseases related to the destruction of myelin. Emily studied Elementary/Special Education at Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kansas. Emily is a resource room teacher at a local elementary school in Lawrence, Kansas.
