Last night my entire family gathered around the TV together to watch "Undercover Boss". My step-dad, Al, was a featured employee of Mack Trucks. He did such an incredible training the CEO in a gracious and kind manner. He also had an opportunity to sit down with Denny Slagle (the CEO) and share Waverly & Oliver's story. Denny was obviously touched - he is also a Grandpa. Al's love for the kids was evident to every single person who watched the show. Waverly & Oliver's photos were shown a few times and Al was able to tell people a little about Sanfilippo Syndrome (MPS III). He raising awareness on a national level!!
Mack Trucks donated $5000 to the MPS Society, which will be used for Sanfilippo research. (They is currently no treatment for this horrible disease.) Mack is also sending my parents, Matt, Waverly, Oliver and I to Disney World in the fall for a week long vacation!
Thanks to Mack Trucks and Denny Slagle for your generosity!!!
You can watch Al's episode HERE. He is shown about 20 minutes in and then again at the end of the show.
