Wow .. what can I say to all of you supporters?
Thanks hardly seems like enough. MS has affected my life for over 10 years now. Both my Mom and my Aunt have been diagnosed with MS and face daily struggles and challenges as they try to cope with the disease. I work hard all year round at different events and fundraisers, trying to do my part to bring awareness to this awful disease, and to raise funds to help with research and to assist those living with MS right here in Oxford County. As hard as I work, nothing matters without you. You are my supporters, my friends, my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for doing as much as you do!
Can you imagine…
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
…a future without MS
I’ve registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there.
