Hello Family and Friends: I hope everyone is staying safe and well during this time of Covid 19. For anyone with a pre-existing health condition this time is even more precarious. Barbara has been working from home since the lockdown.She is starting to get antsy as distancing in Toronto is difficult.The small employment law firm she works for are super busy since Corona's appearance. She is fine so far although being in Toronto at this period in time is probably not the best place to be. She has a new pure white ragdoll kitten with blue eyes. She called him Biggie. She works out daily on her rowing machine and Biggie keeps her company during this strange time. I will be walking alone this year number 12 since Barbara's diagnosis. Anyone wishing to join our team and do your own virtual walk are sure welcome. This will be my first MS virtual walk and hopefully the last virtual walk! I know that many are in difficult times financially so I have lowered my fundraising goal. If you can help out please do! Wishing everyone good mental and physical health during this time of upheaval. We can make it through this Canada!
Mary Ann and Barbara xoxo

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
Ive 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.
