Representative Robert Cole Sprague will present Ohio Revised Code 5.259 to constituent and Hardin County resident Larry Gossard.


The presentation will be made on the steps of the Ohio State house in Columbus this Wednesday afternoon at 3.


The legislation designates May as “Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month,” providing recognition and awareness for the genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.


Neurofibromatosis, or NF, affects 1 in 3,000 people, including Gossard’s son Bryce Wells-Gossard.


Nearly 4,000 people in Ohio are affected by NF; there is no cure at this time.


The bill was signed into law by Governor John Kasich back in late February.
