Why I’m walking to end MS
MS is a cause very dear to the hearts of my family and friends. My sister has MS and has been living with it for many years now. A couple of years ago we also lost a friend Pete Sampaio to the illness, who had a very severe case of MS for many years which eventually deteriated his body and functionality. We walk to help raise funds and awareness for this powerful illness so that hopefully someday we can find a cure for my sister and many others who live with MS, so that they never have to experience or even think of experiencing the torture our good friend Peter had to live with, yet he always had high spirits. There's been some great research and development around MS the past few years and medical breakthroughs are happening more and more, with further support, awareness and more funds raised, the better chance we all have at ending MS once and for all!
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.
