E.T Went Home
Patience, grace, love, and understanding are so important when a person receives this diagnosis. We call MS a “snowflake” disease, because it effects every beautiful individual differently.
Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world and, on average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable disease every day. We don’t know what causes MS, and we don’t have a cure. Yet.
We created this team with so much love and appreciation for the unwavering faith, love and strength our mom/friend showed us in her approximate 14 month courageous battle with Rapid Progressive MS.
Mom’s initials are E.T, and for as long as we can remember, she would often joke around saying ‘E.T go home,’ and poke fun at herself for being crazy/silly and really wacky & out there :) Her faith was a steady constant through every single stage of her battle, and even though she experienced progressing pain, she always wanted to help others smile and feel joy in their own lives. We miss her dearly, but wow did we ever learn so much from her and we carry her love, gentleness & knowledge with us daily.
*Strength in Movement* She moved with intention every day, no matter the pain & discomfort felt. Even when her movement was only done when we helped her - we can still easily visualize her smile & deep appreciation with every single little motion.
We aren’t together in person, we are together in our hearts! We’re participating in the MS Walk because we want to support our friends & family members who are currently affected by MS.
Join our team as we challenge MS and help empower more people affected by the disease to live their best lives.
If you are unable to join us at MS Walk, donate to our team’s fundraising today. Your donation will help continue to fund leading-edge research and support programs that improve the quality of life for people affected by MS.
