Why we’re walking to end MS Our Journey
On July 18th, 2016 our family recieved heartbreaking news that shook our whole world. Ryan, who had just turned 21 on July 17th, 2016, was told he had MS. They say MS can be hereditery but no one in our family has ever had MS. How did this happen?
Ryan's diagnosis began at the end of June 2016 when his toes, feet, legs and abdomen started going numb. He had terrible fatigue, along with dizziness and fainting spells. His second flare up was in October 2016, effecting his eyes.
In December 2016, he began treatment of daily injections. This was a heartbreaking ordeal to witness. He experienced severe pain and muscle spasms instantly after getting his injection.
It is one of the worst things to see a loved one go through what he's had to endure. Ryan has persevered through alot in the past 1 1/2 years. He is our families hero!
Ryan, myself and his siblings will be participating in our 2nd MS walk on May 6, 2018 in St.Albert. Anyone is welcome to join our team or donate to MS in hopes that no one else has to go through this illness.
Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
