About Gene Lorch
My name is Gene Lorch my wife Melody and I have two adult children with MS. Kurt Lorch and Kristi Mullins. We have been supporters of finding a cure for MS since 1997 when we discovered that Kurt had MS. I remember when Kurt and I went to a car show in southern Illinois and in the heat of the day he was having problems seeing clearly. It was that year he was diagnosed. Kristi was diagnosed several years later. Melody and I have been married for 52 years and have 13 grandkids, 5 great grandkids. Our house rocks when everyone comes home. I am retired from GE since 2001.
