Why I’m walking to end MS
August 29, 2014 is a day that I will remember forever. That is the day that we sat with our daughter, in the neurologists office and was given the news that Megan had MS. The tears, sleepless nights and feeling of helplessness, sometimes overwhelmed me. With time, we have accepted that our daughter has MS. Megan has met the challenges that MS has dealt her. We admire her determination to live with and overcome this disease. We know there may still be challenging days ahead, but with the love and support she receives from her husband, amazing baby boy, family and friends, WE WILL GET THROUGH IT TOGETHER! We are very proud of Megan and the strength and courage she has.
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.
