A Message From Kenny
2018 began with me being released from Lewis Gale Hospital after having a surgery to repair a torn ligament and muscle in my left elbow, a result of taking my walker out of the back of my car after one of my first "post hip replacement" rides. This surgery became infected and had to be done over to remove, clean out and replace the work done in December. This required me to be "inactive" for six more weeks.
Instead of becoming too disappointed, I made another plan… I purchased a lap top and wrote my book: "All I Ever Wanted To Be…". With the great help and guidance of Beth Garst, my guru at Howl’n' Dog Designs, the book was formatted and forwarded to the printing company and returned to me in early June. I AM NOW AN AUTHOR !!!
In addition to getting out my story, part of the reason for the book was to provide support for the Multiple Sclerosis Alliance of Virginia and encouragement to my many friends ... both inside the M.S. community and the many friends that purchased my book to just show me their support and love. Thus far $3,000 has been donated to the MSAV from the purchase of the book !!!
I need your help and support more than ever! To donate to the cause,
please contact the MS Alliance of Virginia at 540-404-1167 or send a check to MSAV at this address:
