Why I’m walking to end MS:
I was diagnosed with MS in the fall of 2016. Since then I have been on three different medications and had minor flare-ups but since going on a new infusion medication I have been symptom free in 2019.
Because of this, MS doesn't have physical impact on my daily life. But it does make me want to raise more money for the MS Society of Canada. It's because of funding and research that I am able to manage this disease and hopefully prevent future damage. It also makes me want to support those that struggle with MS on a daily basis.
Any amount you can donate will go toward finding the cause / cure and will show your support for me and others living with MS in Canada. This year will be my third year participating in the MS Walk and I was blown away the first two years by the encouragement and enthusiasm of family and friends. By donating to F.U.M.S you become part of a great support system - thank you so much!
Additional information (from the MS Society of Canada):
Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
