Dear readers,

The International Chiari Association (ICA) is honored to receive thank yous every day. While I am the founder and president, I am thankful to the ICA as well. 

Through the ICA, I have met so many brave people that inspire me every day and I have also learned a great deal about my family history. I visited McComas, West Virginia for the first time on Sept. 11 and, thanks to the ICA, my goal is for McComas to always be remembered.
