My Connection to MS

Yarrow, my wife, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the summer of 2008. She was always the athletic one between the two of us, having spent much of her youth in a dojo and winters in her adult life barreling down a mountain strapped to a snowboard. So when her symptoms appeared over the years, the doctors had a ready explanation at hand: a pinched nerve or a sports related injury.

But on that fateful day in August, a new doctor became aware of a numbness in her toes that had rapidly progressed up her legs and even up through her torso. The doctor ordered MRI tests and immediately referred Yarrow to a neurologist. The images revealed lesions in her brain and spine, confirming the disease.

Why I Ride

I'm joining with Bike MS New York City because I want to support my wife and everyone who is impacted by this disorder. Despite the millions of dollars spent on research, we still have no cure. However the movement has made significant progress in treating symptoms, preventing relapse, and restoring function. The Bike MS events across the country provide the National MS Society much needed resources for advocacy, providing support, and directing research.

Why You Should Sponsor Me

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected fromBike MSNew York Cityto not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we choose toride for those who sometimes can't, because we choose to donate toBike MS, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
