    HECK of Washington asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. HECK of Washington. My wife, Paula, and I live about 500 yards from Olympia High School and its baseball field, and every spring we wander over and watch the team play. For the past 20 years, it's been coached by Todd McDougall, and he's a great coach.

    Todd's just 42 years old. He's taught his entire career at Olympia High School. He is one of those--and we all know them--great teachers, as is his wife, Julie, a middle school science teacher.

    So you can imagine the community heartbreak a few weeks ago when he was diagnosed with glioblastoma grade 4 brain cancer. Coach McDougall could use our prayers right now, as could Julie, their 11-year-old daughter, Marlee, and their twin 9-year-old sons, Andrew and Dylan.

    I hope you'll find out more about this remarkable man at Friends for Todd McDougall on Facebook.
