Hello and Happy Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week!
Walk MS 2018 is just around the corner, and so is my fifth MS-iversary! This year will also be the first walk without an original member of Team Bruised Apple—my dear friend Krysa, who passed away just three days after last year’s walk.
As you may know, I’ve recently started a more aggressive treatment for my MS, after not responding well to any previous treatment plans, and after multiple new active lesions were visible on my annual MRI scans. While MS research has made great progress (thanks to the assistance from contributors like you!), there is still a long way to go.
Last year, you helped me raise over $4500 for MS research and resources. This year, in honor of my fifth year living with MS, I hope to raise $5000.
Every single dollar truly makes an impact on the lives of the 2.5 million people worldwide living with MS, as well as the lives of the people who love them.
To help me reach my $5000 goal this year, please click here to use the online donation form.
***If you own a small business and are interested in being a corporate sponsor of my team, please email email@example.com by March 28th for further information.***
Thank you so, so much for your consideration and continued support.
Oh! HEY! Speaking of MS research…
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) partnered to make this article possible, and I was honored to have been asked to write it!
In it, I describe patient-centered research and relate it to my own experiences. I’m interested to know YOUR opinions on the matters mentioned in this piece, so feel free to weigh in!
