Can you imagine what it is like for an adult to go through life without the ability to read? One in seven adults cannot read a newspaper or the instructions on a bottle of pills.
This month's "2 Those Who Care" recipient is dedicated to changing this reality for illiterate adults.
Ken Titlebaum volunteers for Reading Connections in High Point. He spends his spare time working with a man named Robert. Ken says his volunteer efforts make him feel as good as the man he is helping. He encouraged others to reach out to adults like this who have spent their lives cope with an unbearable problem.
