Why I’m walking to end MS
I participate in the MS every year because my family and I have been impacted by MS. My grandfather has been battling MS for over 35 years as well as a close family friend, Debbie. I have seen how difficult this disease is on everyone involved and my only hope is that through the money raised, we will one day find a cure for MS.
Doing my PhD in molecular science has opened my eyes up to landscape of Canadian science and how competitive it is to get grants to fund research. I want to can help raise funds so that brilliant scientists are given the opportunity to research MS and find a cure.
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.
