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.
I have been living with MS since 2000. My brother has been living with it since 2008. List four other people you know, and chances are at least one of them is affected by MS in a personal way, whether it's themselves or a family member.
This will be my 17th year walking for MS. Please support me and my walk team (Baby Steps) as we raise money for the MS Society. The money goes towards research to find a cure, and towards improving the lives of those affected by the disease through their many support systems. Your donation could mean months of housekeeping services for someone who needs it, or a wheelchair, walker, or cane. It could cover the resources needed to hold a support group meeting or send newsletters across Canada keeping people informed of new medical discoveries.
Thank you for your continued support!
