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. My maternal aunt, my first cousin and myself have all been diagnosed with MS and each of us with a different form of this unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. My mother-in-law died from complications from MS much too soon. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
That is is why I am walking. For my cousin who can't, for my mother-in-law who fought hard but lost the battle and for myself because I am still able. 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.
