Why am I Riding (AGAIN!) in the Bike MS Cox Atlanta Ride?

We all remember Newton’s 1st Law of Motion: a body at rest stays at rest and a body in motion stays in motion.  Well, I am grateful and fortunate to have the ability to move today, and I will keep moving in honor of my friends who have lost mobility because of MS.

After completing the ride last year, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to wake up before the sun comes up and spend hours upon hours of training! Really!  It’s a beautiful thing to see the sun creep up from beyond the horizon of Piedmont Park and focus on balancing on crazy-thin tires, dodging runners, joggers, dogs, and other riders along the Atlanta Beltline.  That’ll wake you up!

 

About My MS

Twenty-six infusions later, my MS is remaining mostly in remission today.  I am one of the lucky ones – and I never take this for granted.  The luck of my draw is that I found a treatment that works remarkably well and I am surrounded by support and guidance all along the way.  Many many thousands of people with MS are not as fortunate; damage caused by MS can be permanent and without treatment options that are more aggressive than the disease itself, damage will be permanent.

 

Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms. Essentially, Multiple Sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. Symptoms can range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis - and any/everything in between. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot be predicted, and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is among the leaders pushing for advances in research and treatment, moving us closer to a world free of MS.

 

Please Join Me!

Today, all of us with MS are stuck with it.  Nothing, let me repeat that, nothing, cures MS.  The National MS Society is leading the way with breakthroughs in research and advocacy.  They are also on the frontlines with patients, providing direct support and programs.  We are on the cusp of finding a cure, yet there is so much more work to do.  Your support truly will go so so far in helping get us closer to that day!

 

Be part of the cure!

 

Thank you!
