Dear Friends & Family,
I was diagnosed on August 3, 2003 with MS I was told that in 10 years I would be in a wheelchair. The first couple of years I felt like nothing really mattered to me because I was going to be in the wheelchair and not be able to walk or worse not be able to take care of myself. About three years later I looked at myself in the mirror and said "Why the hell should I just sit around and wait for this to happen”. After my pity party I decided to learn everything I could about this disease. I had a lot of work ahead of me with developing my self-esteem because of what I was told the day I was diagnosed. I figured why do anything if the outcome is not being able to walk on my own. It took my several years to start living my life and look forward to the future. I am very proud to say my friends and family have helped me a great deal by making me get out and live my life not always thinking about the negative and look to the positive things in my future. The fact is I can still do the things I enjoy and I don’t let this disease define my future
WHY I PARTICIPATE: Walk MS is a day that connects friends, families, and coworkers who join together to help create a world free of MS. Each step we take brings us closer to ending MS forever. That's why I registered for Walk MS.

ABOUT MS Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide.

PLEASE SUPPORT ME! Your gift helps provide life-changing programs and services for people affected by MS, and cutting-edge research. Your donation puts us closer to realizing our promise to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE lost function and END MS forever. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again.

Every step matters. Every dollar counts. Every person makes a difference.
Thank you,
Kim
