As a teenager, I participated in many MS fundraising events - MS Walks, Carnation Campaign, and as a server for a number of fundraising dinners and galas. I did this to support my uncle with MS who later passed away from complications of the disease. Flash forward to now when I myself have received a diagnosis of MS. Little did I know that the fundraising I participated in as a teen would help create therapies that would be a life saver to me today.
I am participating in MS Walk because I want to continue 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.
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.
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.
