Kincardine, Ontario, Canada

Ron, a member of the ULF Board since 2007, currently serves as President. His wife, Marla, has been a past board member and together they have three children: Alexandra, Aidan and Liam.

Aidan was diagnosed with megalencephalic leukoencephalopathy with subcortical cysts (MLC-1) at about the age of 2.

Ron has been a pharmacist for 30 years. His first 8 years focused on delivering information and care to others. Facing his son’s long and gut-wrenching diagnosis process, Ron learned a new awareness. He gained the understanding of how critical it is to have reliable information and how much easier it is to receive when it’s delivered in a compassionate manner.

Ron is grateful to the ULF and its connections to medical professionals who have been there for his entire family. As they continue the challenging journey caring for his son, he hopes to do the same for others facing a similar journey.
