NAMI Breakfast Reading

At the NAMI breakfast on May 10, 2011 Ali shared a bit about her brother to a crowd of almost 500.

The National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) presented their inaugural Friends and Fundraiser on May 10, 2011.  It was held at the Antlers Hilton, in Colorado Springs, CO.  The theme of the meeting was ‘Rewriting the Story’ and was based on the book, Louie’s Saxophone, written by Trevor J Boehm.  The story was read aloud by poet laureate David Mason and performed by the students of the Colorado Springs Conservatory.

We are deeply grateful to the Boehm family for sharing Trevor’s story.  Their courage inspires us to continue rewriting the story of mental illness in our community.
