I have walked in the MS walk for about 8 years. My daughters have participated with me through the walk and bike fundraising.
I had my first MS attack in 2010 a month after I turned 50. Took some time to formally diagnose me with RRMS but in 2020 I was diagnosed with Secondary Progressive MS. Not the news I wanted but thankful of the medications that keep me mobile. I truly hope that the advances in research improve the management of this disease as well as finding a cure.
Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world, and on average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable illness every day. We don’t know what causes MS, and we don’t have a cure. Yet.
I am participating in MS Walk because I want to support the world’s leading researchers discover the cause, treatments and cure for MS. Leading-edge research and support programs have improved the quality of life for people affected by MS.
When you make a donation to my fundraising, you are helping continue this incredible work.
Thank you for supporting our MS Walk community. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your support.
