I am asking you to support me in Bike MS because this cause is meaningful and personal to me. Over the last 40 years I have witnessed the horrible effects and impact of this disease. I watched my mother's quality of life and independence slowly deteriate. Today my father can no longer provide the care she needs and sadenly has had to place her in a skilled nursing facility. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Your gift helps support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will hear the words "You have MS" ever again. Every dollar counts!
See you at the Finish Line!
