In 1994, my mom, Jean Alexander, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. At the time of her diagnosis, my family had no idea the devastating affect this disease would have on our lives. In the beginning, my mom began to lose her eyesight, and as the years passed it became harder for her to walk. We were hopeful that with time and physical therapy, she would be able to walk again, however, we were wrong. It didn't take much time for the disease to take full effect. She continued to get worse, and eventually the disease took her life. The diagnosis of my mom is the worst thing that has ever happened to me, and it is because of her fight for survival, Jean's Dream was born. Even though she can never be cured, I am still fighting. I am fighting so children, spouses, and parents do not have to endure the hardships my family has. I don't just walk for my mom, I walk for everyone who has had to live with Multiple Sclerosis, so that one day they can be free of this terrible disease.
