Dear Family and Friends,
As you know, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis over 20 years ago. But with the love and support of my family and friends I know I can beat this.
As I participate in my 20th MS Walk, I have seen the awareness and support for MS grow substantially and it is my belief that a cure for Multiple Sclerosis will be found within my lifetime and with your Support it will definitely happen!
If you would like to make a pledge and support me and the thousands of people who are affected by this disease, I would be very grateful and appreciative of your support!
Can you imagine?
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning 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 many and vary for everyone. It?s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
?a future without MS
I?ve registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society?s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
