Living with MS means living with uncertainty.Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men contracting the disease.There is no cure, and MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.5 million worldwide.
When it comes to MS, only two things are certain.
That another American is diagnosed every hour of every day.
And that a whole lot of people are joining the movement toward a world free of MS. Including me.
Why I Ride
I've registered for the Bike MS: Cox Atlanta Ride to fulfill a personal challenge, and also to help the National MS Society?s Georgia Chapter fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families lead powerful lives. I believe in the work they do, and I want to be part of it. Can I count on your help?
Let?s Move Forward Together
Bike MS is a great challenge but also great fun!Funds raised go toward research aimed at treating and eventually curing MS. They also provide education, information, direct financial aid and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS in our community.
I?m helping the National MS Society move forward toward a world without MS. Please join me by making a donation or joining my team!
