Basketball Tournament - Kansas (2006)
J. R. Drouhard coordinated a basketball tournament in his hometown to help raise the money he and his mother needed to attend the National Family Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. J.R. is fifteen years old and has lamellar ichthyosis. J.R.'s efforts were so successful, he and his mother, Jill Kimple, were able to attend the family conference and donate an additional $300 to ichthyosis research. J.R. and his friends in Conway Springs, Kansas, had a great time while raising money for a good cause. J.R.'s mom, Jill, says, "We are so glad to have F.I.R.S.T. as a resource. Thank you all for all you do."
