Can you imagine…
The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It’s estimated that approximately 100,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed. In Niagara area the number is 1,000 receiving support for MS.
…a future without MS
For the 16th year, I’ve registered for the MS Bike Tour to fulfill a personal challenge, and to help the MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Bike Tour has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
Great news: there is now a stem cell and immunoablation treatment option for people with aggressive MS at The Ottawa Hospital.
Canadians made this happen. People like you made this happen. The Canadian Bone Marrow Transplantation trial was funded through money raised from events like the MS Bike. To date I have raised $820.00.
I am part of the MS Bike Tour because I believe in a future without multiple sclerosis – and with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
Thank for your donation in 2018.
