David Baldacci, a former trial lawyer turned best-selling author, became involved with the National MS Society after his sister, author Sharon Baldacci was diagnosed with MS.
Active in raising awareness about the MS cause and increasing volunteer participation, Baldacci has taken part in the Books for a Better Life Awards. In April 2002 Baldacci was made a National MS Society ambassador.
Baldacci is one of the world's favorite storytellers. His books are published in over 45 languages and in more than 80 countries, with over 110 million copies in print. Baldacci is also the cofounder, along with his wife, of the Wish You Well Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting literacy efforts across America.
