Adam & Meghan with Emma and Austin

Community Dines Out for FIRST and Local Family
Adam and Meghan K.
from Moorpark, California are the proud parents of four-year-old Emma and Austin, two years old, both of whom are affected with lamellar epidermal nevus.

During Ichthyosis Awareness Month in May, Adam and Meghan hosted their 2nd evening at a Souplantation Restaurant, a popular chain in California, to raise funds for FIRST and awareness about ichthyosis.

The family had attended fundraisers at Souplantation in the past and thought it would be a good way to have an event. The basis for the event is that participants bring a flyer to Souplanation on the night of the event, and a portion of the proceeds generated from those sales will benefit FIRST. They planned their event for May 31. With family and friends spreading the word the attendance was too numerous to count!   The outpouring from their church, friends, and students of Meghan’s father, Thomas P., who taught at the local high school until his recent retirement, was overwhelming. Adam and Meghan had a wonderful time connecting with those who attended. The family of Nicholas T. who is affected with lamellar ichthyosis attended also. Nicholas’ mom, Cristina was able to chat with Meghan during the evening and both women look forward to connecting again soon. Almost $500 was raised during this evening for FIRST.
