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 100,000 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 and because it affects our family directly. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services. Proceeds from this event 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, like Heather. I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there.
I’m counting on your generous support again this year. Funding for research has allowed for the development of treatment that can dramatically alter the course of this disease.
