April is Autism Awareness Month. 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and Chief Whitebread and his Wife Amanda’s son is that 1. His name is Logan. He is just as big of a part of the department as everyone else. When Logan was diagnosed in 2015 the members of the MVFD stood fast to support not only Logan, but Kenny and Amanda as well.
Kenny and Amanda have always said, “ Autism will not define Logan, he will define his Autism.”
Our department had special fronts made by Ain't Your Standard Issue in support of Autism and the big "L" in honor of Logan.
