Imagine a future without MS ...
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning when you wake up, you may not be able to walk. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Or that your fingers won't be able to hold a spoon. For me it was that squash game 19 years ago, where my legs would not listen to my brain, refusing to move when I wanted them to. Since that attack, I have recovered most of my agility and strength; as my specialist says: "there's nothing wrong with you that's not age-related!" But others are not as fortunate; these are the people I'm golfing for.
The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services. 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. It’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day 2-4 more people are diagnosed.
I believe in a future without multiple sclerosis. With your help we can get there.
Thank you for your extreme generousity!
