My wife Karen, was diagnosed with MS in April of 2013. We didn't know a lot about the disease, but wanted and needed to learn. It is an illness that is different for every patient, and no 2 people diagnosed with Multiple Schlerosis seem to have the same symptoms. We have friends with MS, and have meet many others who also have the disease.
Myself, and my family and friends, team mates, have entered a team in the MS GOLF FUNDRAISING TOURNEY EVENT - MONDAY JULY 16 2018 at Innisfail golf course. For the 6th year we are hitting the links again, to raise awareness, funds for MS research, patient support - MS is Canada’s disease, let’s work together to find the cure, that’s a title we would be proud to not call our own. We will keep fighting the fight to find a cure!
Please help our team support my wife Karen, and others battling the disease of MS - Multiple Sclerosis.
On behalf of myself, my family, our team - Team G, thank-you, for your support!
( Also - another family/friend team has been formed - Team G2 - we all appreciate your support )
- The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services. Proceeds from this Golf event and other events 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. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are many and vary for everyone. The number of Canadians living with MS is the highest world wide, and increases every day, and will continue to rise until a cure is found.
Can you imagine... Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It's estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
...a future without MS - I've registered for this event because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. With your help, together we can make a difference...
