I am now 31. I am unable to currently work, I have a 4-wheeled walker that I need to navigate my home and I take daily medication for my worsening symptoms. This is what Multiple Sclerosis has meant for me and my family. My life has not stayed the same. Over the past 5 years I had to not only reevaluate my career and but my personal goals and dreams. Being diagnosised with multiple sclerosis has changed our day to day lives in more ways then I ever thought possible. I may not be able to bike 180km anymore but I will still fight back. MS may continue to take my physical strength and endurance but it can never take my spirit. I am still strong willed, determined and hopelessly stubborn, so I will walk and advocate and fundraise untill the medication I take is the one that cures me.
Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world, and on average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable illness every day. We don't know what causes MS, and we don't have a cure. Yet.
I am participating in MS Walk because I want to support the world's leading researchers discover the cause, treatments and cure for MS. Leading-edge research and support programs have improved the quality of life for people affected by MS.
When you make a donation to my fundraising, you are helping continue this incredible work.
Thank you for supporting our MS Walk community. We wouldn't be where we are today without your support.
