Why I Walk

As some of you know, my wife Nancy was diagnosed with MS several years ago. In addition, our 21 year old son was diagnosed in the Fall of 2010.  Thanks to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and all those that provide financial support, he currently takes the first ever oral drug, just approved in September of 2010 and now available since October 2010, that helps prolong the time between MS episodes.  Previously the only available treatments ranged from daily injections, which Nancy takes, to monthly infusions.

There is still no cure for Multiple Sclerosis, but treatment has improved immensely over recent years, again thanks to the funding of various research programs. Especially for these reasons, I've registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for them and other people who have been diagnosed - and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with a diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.

 

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 You Should Sponsor Me

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from the MS Walk to 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 to walk for those who sometimes can't, because we choose to donate to the MS Walk, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
