When Laura was diagnosed I told her that "in sickness and health" were not just words, we were in this together. Although I can't take it away I would do everything I could to help. For me that meant a lot of things one of which is helping to raise not only awareness but to help raise money to find a cure and help others in need. Every day brings new challenges and experiences but one thing that hasn't changed is my resolve to do my part in bringing an end to this horrible disease. This is a disease that is "managed" nothing more. There is no "recovery", "remission" or "cure". To me this is unacceptable. To me this can be changed and I will do what I can to help bring about this change. Please give generously. Please spread the word. Please help find a cure!
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.
In September 2011, my wife, Laura, was at work when all of a sudden she realized that she could not see out of one eye. That was the start of our journey with MS.
...a future without MS
I've registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone, including my wife, who lives with multiple sclerosis. I don't want my wife to lose her vision, her ability to walk or any of the other multiple symptoms that can occur. With your help, together we can make a difference.
