Why I’m walking to end MS
June 3rd, 2015. A date etched in mine, and my families minds. The day my world stood still. After experiencing vague and intermittent symptoms I recieved an MRI and was told I needed to go to the ER right away for the results. After a few hours of waiting, my wife and I heard, "You have lesions on your brain and the top of your spinal cord and it looks like MS".
We really didn't know what that meant or what we should expect. Once getting to the U of A Kaye Clinic and meeting their team of doctors and nurses, we were givien a treatment plan and a mountain of information. One piece of that information was that there is no cure. No cure for this disease that affects thousands upon thousands of Canadians. A disease that is unpredictable in its nature. We're walking to change that; We're walking to raise awarness, funds, and knowledge to help find a cure.
Join us in the fight to end MS
My team " Not MS'n around " has been the top fundraising team for the past 2 years and we are very proud of that. We couldn't have done it without the generous support of friends and family.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Walk, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
