Hello and thank you for visiting my MS Walk page!
Last year, my family and I raised money to walk to help end MS! This cause is very close to all of our hearts because I have relapsing-remitting MS. I am thankful to still be able to walk and have had a taste of what not being able to walk is like. It is scary and brutal and I hope that one day there will be a cure so that no one will have to suffer with this disease anymore.
I had a very aggressive disease and it didn't take very long for me to go from fully ambulatory to needing a walker. This was in late 2014/early 2015. I had a medication called Lemtrada in May of 2015 that gave me my life back, allowing me to walk again unaided, drive, and live normally. Thanks to donations like the ones you can give, research is ongoing for drugs like Lemtrada and other treatments.
Last year when we walked, I was four months pregnant. This year, we'll be walking with baby Elise in tow!
Thank you to everyone who gave last year and, of course, I encourage you to donate again :) I promise you're making a difference in lives of people like me!
Why I’m walking to end MS
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.
