Why I’m walking to end MS - My daughter Melissa.
To all who know me and my family, you know that over the last 2 years, MS has thrown my daughter Melissa and her sweet family's lives upside down. Then last year, Melissa started a new drug therapy which targets the B cells. This therapy is making a huge difference! She is getting stronger. Through the great struggles and challenges that she faced, she has adapted with the help from her husband and family and friends. While it broke my heart to see her struggles and not being able to do much to help, over this past year I have marveled at her bravery, determination, courage, and plain and simple, internal strength she has! There are no words to describe how I feel.
With on-going research, I believe they will find a cure. We have not lost hope for a cure! We need a cure!!! #endms #findacure #mswarrior
Please help, if you can, by donating towards my fundraising page for the 2018 Kelowna MS Walk this Sunday. And Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
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.
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.
