Why I’m walking to end MS
Thanks to everyone who’s read and shared Mandarin MS Walk posts -- and thanks to those who have donated. As most of you know, I’m participating in the Mandarin MS Walk and raising money to support Canadians living with MS. It’s not too late to help! Please help me reach my fundraising goal. Donate here.

Every boy dreams of being just like his Dad at some point in their life. My Dad had MS, something nobody wants, and last August I was given the same diagnosis. I am walking to help find a cure not so much for me but for my family and the future warriors that may need to battle through this awful disease. It touches and affects far too many families and has already taken my Dad from us. I am hoping that a cure can be found to stop MS from affecting any more families the way it has affected mine.
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.
