Marcia R., who is affected with an unknown type of ichthyosis, is an employee at COCC, a technology services company in Avon, Connecticut. COCC allows employees to submit the name of a favorite charity. Once a month, an organization is randomly selected to be the recipient of a Denim Day donation. On the first Friday of the month, employees are able to wear denim to work by making a minimum donation of $5 to support the chosen organization. Marcia states her commitment to FIRST, “I have always admired what FIRST continues to accomplish since their inception. As a child with ichthyosis, my family did not have the support network that exists today.   You provide such an important point of contact for families that need the initial/ongoing support when faced with a child born with a form of ichthyosis.    My ongoing mission has been to continue to share what FIRST does.”   The generous amount donated by the employees of COCC was $605.00!
