My personal reason for participating in the MS walk is to honour my late mother (Kathleen Klatt) whom passed away of the disease 18 years ago after a long hard faught battle that ended up taking her from us at a young age. My whole childhood she was sick and relied on her family to help and support her through the tough days. I know a lot of other individuals who are also suffering with this horrible disease that has taken over their bodies and their lives and I want to help them get a cure for their illness.
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 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.
