My father was diagnosed with MS about ten years ago. His profession is hard work. Being a brewer he is always on his feet, lifting heavy loads and working long days. MS has made it extremely difficult for him to continue doing what he loves. I am hoping to raise money so that more people can continue to do what they love, even in the presence of a disease like MS. I will be walking with him next Sunday in Collingwood. I greatly appreciate any pledge big or small.
Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world, and on average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable illness every day. We don't know what causes MS, and we don't have a cure. Yet.
I am participating in MS Walk because I want to support the world's leading researchers discover the cause, treatments and cure for MS. Leading-edge research and support programs have improved the quality of life for people affected by MS.
When you make a donation to my fundraising, you are helping continue this incredible work.
Thank you for supporting our MS Walk community. We wouldn't be where we are today without your support.
