Closing out the calendar year for the National MS Society, the Franklin Family was invited to attend the National MS Society’s Holiday Celebration and Awards Luncheon as recipients of the 2013 Special Event Award. The luncheon, held on December 11 at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. is an opportunity for members of the board of trustees and friends of the society to gather to recognize the contributions of certain individuals who have helped to bring us closer to a cure. Brian van de Graaff, WJLA ABC 7 Meteorologist and emcee for the event, presented the Special Event Award to Lexi Franklin, her parents Rick and Laura, and her sister and brother-in-law Angela and Dennis. Lexi thanked those in attendance for their continued support of her fight against multiple sclerosis, and expressed her unshakeable dedication to the cause.
