Awesome disease

As school ended for the summer, my niece brought home thank-you notes from her class for my FA talk to them. Her teacher had forgotten to mail them to me.

They mostly made me laugh. They often called me Mr. Matt and referred to Fame’s tricks. But I don’t think I quite got across the horror of Friedreich’s ataxia, which they all spelled right. they often said my speech was fun or awesome.

My niece’s made me want to cry, though.

She told me how I “kicked butt,” and how lucky she is to be related to me.
