This year, I decided to participate again to MS Walk to continue helping the best researchers in the world to discover the causes of MS and ways to treat and cure it. Cutting-edge research and support programs improve the quality of life for people affected by MS.
Having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in May 2018, during the 2019 edition of the MS Walk, I felt the need to get involved and invite my family and friends to do the same. The event brings together a whole crowd of people who are joining forces for the same cause and by doing so, the name of the event lives up to its name. Seeing that so many people across Canada are coming together for the same cause allows those living with multiple sclerosis and their loved ones to fill their reserve of hope to face the hardships that the disease imposes.
I invite you to encourage me, but above all to support the cause and the approximately 20,000 Quebecers and 100,000 Canadians affected by this disease. To do so, you can simply donate. If you would like to do more, I invite you to join my team as a walker and become yourself a fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
Our country has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world - on average, eleven Canadians learn every day that they have this unpredictable disease. We do not know what causes MS, and a cure has not yet been found.
When you donate to encourage my fundraising, you are helping to continue this important mission.
Thank you for your support of the Hope Walk community. We couldn't have come this far without you.
