So, I have lost count of how many Phoenix walks I have participated in over the last 20+ years. I took the last few years off but am back this year and hope to raise a bunch of money and hope to have many friends' family join me on my walk. I participate in hopes of ending this horrible disease on my behalf, and in memory of my grandfather, who also battled M.S.
When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. Symptoms of MS 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 leading to better understanding and 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, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
