Emily talks about her dad with MSA (audio recording, Feb 2013, Raleigh, NC)

Someone named Mark posted this today to the ShyDrager Yahoo!Group:

“As part of MSA Awareness month, I thought members of the group might be interested in listening to a story about MSA from my daughter’s perspective and told to an audience of about 100 people at a local story telling venue, The Monti, in Raleigh.


(After a short introduction, the story begins at the 1:04 mark)”

Within this audio recording, Emily Kotecki talks about her dad for about 10 minutes.  It’s very sweet and worth listening to.
