Living with MS, Staying Fit with MS
Since being diagnosed with remitting/relapsing MS in September of 2016, I’ve had to adapt my daily life. I’ve had to learn to slow down and become better informed in order to help my mind and body heal.
Even before I was diagnosed, I knew the consequences this disease can bring. Both my grandmother and an auntie suffer from MS symptoms that make even the simplest daily tasks difficult. It is a disease with many faces and changing symptoms – one that is slowly debilitating.
The same disease that I have watched slowly change the lives of my loved ones is now something that I will have to manage and deal with on a daily basis for the rest of my life.
But it's not all about me.
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 for joining the fight to end MS!
