The MS Walk is a celebration of the power we have to change the lives of Canadians with MS.
A diagnosis of MS was very overwhelming for me. I had so many questions about what the future would hold. I have come to accept that MS is a part of my life and I try to live one day at a time.
I am proud of the life my husband and I have built together. We have a beautiful 16-year-old daughter and a fun-loving Shiz Tzu named Max. I am proud of my career as a teacher and that I continue to work, despite MS.
Learning to live with MS is an ongoing struggle and I have been successful by practicing flexibility and making changes to accommodate the realities of living with MS. It isn’t only me who has to do this, my family does as well. I do not want MS to take away my happiness or my family’s, so together, we make changes so that we can enjoy family time together, and when the “big” things come our way, we can deal with them in a positive way.
The 2018 MS Walk will be my 9th time participating in the walk. I believe strongly in the power of people working together with a common goal. The MS Walk is a celebration of all our efforts! I believe research is the key to finding a cure for MS, so I participate to fund research so that one day, a cure will be found. And in the meantime, until we find a cure, I participate to support people living with MS.
Together, we will end MS. Please support me as I walk to end this disease, and join me on May 6th, at the MS Walk in Winnipeg. Thank you for your support!
