Gerber Group to ride in Bike MS
Gerber Group is riding in support of my close friend, Brad, who I have known since I was seven years old.
Brad was first diagnosed with MS in 2002. After taking a 50 mile bike ride, which was common for him, he had numbness in his leg that didn't go away. Brad went to the neurologist and had a MRI that showed multiple lesions on the brain and spinal cord.
MS is insidious, pervasive and unpredictable. Unremitting fatigue and loss of body control are part of his every day. It's not the kind of tired that a nap will assuage. His body tires after a few steps, his brain gets exhausted after a short conversation or reading an article. Constant tremors, sometimes subtle and other times dramatic, make his movement unstable. All of this forces him to skip doing the things that he enjoys and spending time with the people who are meaningful to him. For Brad the worst part is knowing that MS is as hard, disruptive and challenging for the people who love him as it is for himself.
I am one of the lucky ones that gets to spend a lot to time with Brad. I respect his courage and cherish every day I get to spend with him.
Thanks in advance for your support.

We'd love to have you. Come ride with us and experience a ride that will change lives—including your own.
When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by multiple sclerosis. Symptoms of MS 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 leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
