Why We Fight MS
Having multiple sclerosis means that you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are different, and devastating, for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.
Why I Chose to Participate
This year I've joined forces with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society because I want to do something for the people who have been diagnosed - and because we want to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with MS. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with a diagnosis occurring every hour in this country, it?s time to act. Diagnosis is most common between the ages of 20 and 50, and individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability. Above all else, I do this for my mom who was diagnosed with MS over 25 years ago. I know how difficult life can be for families and individuals with MS and it is my personal goal to do eveything in my power to help rid the world of this terrible disease
Why You Should Sponsor Me
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from this event to support cutting edge research projects, as well as provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can do something about multiple sclerosis, because donations to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society are helping to change the world right now, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
