Why I Want to Create a World Free of MS

This will be my 4th MS Ride out of NYC, and sadly the most important to me and my family. I will be riding in memory of my father who just recently passed away. My dad lived with MSfor 38 years, outliving his life expectancy by more than a decade. While clearning out his room, my sister and I discovered numerous reminders of his courage and determination to never let MS get the best of him. He passed peacefully, where he wanted tobe...surrounded with the people who loved him most. We will certainly miss him, and now more than ever his memory inspires us to do everything we can to help find a cure.

I knew how to pronounce "Multiple Sclerosis", and what it was way before I should have. We lived in Mahopac, NY when I first noticed my father limping and using a cane on occasion to get around. I couldn't have been any older than my son Giovanni (11) is today. My sister, Lindsay, couldn't have been any older than my daughter Liliana (6) is today.
