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.
My sister, Kerry was one of them. Every day she wakes up and has to prepare herself for the trials and tribulations that her MS may hande her that day. She never complains about it, she never talks about it, she just deals with it. Her new reality is learning how to care for her baby girl Emma while coping with MS.
I hope that the future is BIG and bright for both of them. I chose to support the MS Society of Simcoe County as they have helped not only Kerry, but many others in our region learn about their bodies as it betrays them, it has supported their families, funded care and services, advocated for, lobbied for and most importantly reserached for them to have a better future.
I am happy to support this organization and will be matching every dollar pledged. Thank you for your efforts, my family and I are so very grateful.
