Why I’m walking to end MS
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.
January 2017, my family got hit with another major curve ball. We found out news that none of us were prepared for. My younger sister was diagnosed with MS. It is hard to see a loved one take on the challenges that they are faced with when having this illness. It is even harder feeling like you can't do anything to help them. I knew there had to be a way that I could help beyond just being there emotionally for her. That is why I am Walking for MS.
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.
