I apologize for being so very late on getting this year’s WALK MS video out and for being so MIA lately–there has been a LOT going on this summer and I plan on writing about it or making a vlog about it later after the dust has settled and I’ve had time to digest a little. I thank you so much for your continued patience with me!
Okay, sure. I’m new to the Parking Placard Party ™, and I’m no expert on parking lot etiquette, but I felt compelled to compile a quick list of my parking placard tips and pet peeves that you may find useful.
It’s been awhile and I apologize for that. These past six weeks have been relentless.
I don’t want to unload everything that life has thrown at me over the past six weeks too much here, but here’s just a sampling: significant MS attack (followed by a couple of smaller aftershocks), a close friend of mine passed away, one of my dog’s anal glands ruptured, and now….
I recently had the honor of meeting with Colleen Kalt, President and CEO of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society-Wisconsin Chapter, so that she could hand deliver my Big Cheese shirt (Big Cheese=the top 100 fundraisers in the state–something you’ve helped me accomplish each of the three years I’ve done WALK MS so far) this year and hear my story! She’s so empowering and I cannot wait for what is in store for me this fall. 😉
Speaking of fundraising, it’s that time of year again and I’m excited to be walking alongside fellow MSers and our allies for the fourth year in a row! We have just under a month and about $2,800 to go! Year after year, you’ve helped me obliterate my goal for WALK MS—please consider helping me smash it again this year. Every dollar truly makes a difference in research and treatment options for people living with multiple sclerosis (like me!).
We’ve seen the results of this recently, when the FDA approved the first drug ever to treat primary progressive multiple sclerosis (!!!) and that has also been shown to stop the disease in people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (!!!). That’s a huge victory for all of us and is a result of your support.
Also! Do you own a small business? I’m looking for sponsors by Friday, April 14—please contact me for info! I also am seeking sponsors for this year’s team t-shirts!
