Since then I have changed my diet and lifestyle to take care of my health both mentally and physically.
I was fortunate enough to have treatments with Ocrevus, a drug that with help prevent new lesions from forming on the brain and spinal cord. Every six months I receive infusion of this medication and am finding great success so far.
Your donations help with research for new medications like Ocrevus which I have been fortunate to have been taking advantage of this very advanced medicine that helps reduce relapses.
I really appreciate everyones help and participation and in honor of your donations, I will be walking along the river through the heart of Edmonton with my wife Justina(better half)
I am aiming to walk as far as my legs will let me and will be thinking of you all that helped me along the way.
Having been diagnosed with this life changing illness only a year ago, I feel as though this is just a small contribution that I can make to help find a cure for this disease to help others like myself.
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 do whatecer I can 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.
