Alie's Story

Alie at the 2011 MS Walk Boca

Alie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 14. She is grateful to her doctors for their utmost care and passion and for the medications currently available to help slow the progression of her disease enabling her to lead her life to the fullest.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has served as a tremendous source of information and support to Alie and her family, referring the finest doctors, arranging for extra time for her SAT's and guiding her college advisors as to the intricacies of her life with MS. Alie is inspired by the efforts of so many people who raise funds for a cure and the stories of children affected by the lack of money.

An estimated 8,000-10,000 children have multiple sclerosis in the United States. Children with MS can experience weakness, fatigue, numbness and tingling, vision problems, loss of balance, difficulty concentrating or remembering, seizures and mental status changes.

Alie formed Alie's Fund for Children with MS in order to provide funds to children ages 2-22 who live with MS. These funds will help defer medical and educational costs, counseling and other needed services to ensure a brighter future for those impacted by MS.
