Dear Friends,

I’m Phyl Rubin, the co-founder of Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture, and I have lived with multiple sclerosis for nearly 40 years. I had my first MS attack in 1971, but wasn’t diagnosed until two years later when I lost permanent sight in my left eye. In those days, MS was a very difficult diagnosis to make and there were no treatments for the disease. There are times when it’s been frustrating like when I couldn’t do even the simplest task like brushing my own hair. But I’ve always had the philosophy that you make the best of what you have. Getting MS was something I couldn’t control, so I decided early on I wouldn’t let it stop me from living a full life.

I have been fortunate that some of the new medications developed to treat MS in the past decade have helped me control my symptoms. But more needs to be done. I am sharing my story in hope that it will help others, and help raise much needed research funds to find a cure in our lifetime. Please donate here and join me, Bernie, and my family in our quest to create a world free of MS.
