Meredith Byrnes Pfluger, manager of leadership events for the Texas Chapter, had this to say about their presentation in Dallas:

 “I couldn’t have asked for a better presentation. Everyone’s feedback was positive. They were moved by Dan and Jennifer’s story. The tears and smiles in the room that day say it all. They were able to capture the audience even with the distraction of food, waiters, etc.”

Dan and Jennifer also have presented at the NMSS Kentucky/Southeast Indiana Chapter’s “Moving Mountains for MS” family event three of the past four years. Here’s what Chapter Programs Manager Jinny Cornett said about family event reactions to Dan and Jennifer:

“Last year, the attendees spoke and said, ‘MORE, MORE, MORE, of the Digmanns.’ Several of the audience members had the pleasure of hearing them speak before. They were excited the Digmanns were returning. For the new attendees, I heard many wonderful comments following their talk. They were UPLIFTED.”
