Why I’m walking to end MS
MS is something that impacts our family everyday.
When our youngest daughter was just one week old, we got the news that rocked our world and changed our lives forever. Instead of being solely focused on our new baby, we were learning to cope with the reality that my husband, Jason, has MS and will have it for the rest of his life.
My hope is that one day there will be a cure so that our daughters can see their father healthy, and not struggling with this disease on a daily basis.
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.
