Just two months ago, I celebrated my 10th anniversary since being diagnosed with MS and last month I celebrated my 50th Birthday.
Yes, I do say celebrated and I do mean to both events.
Especially for the celebration of the 10th anniversary since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
The reason I say this is because when I was first diagnosed, I was told that within 5-6 years, I would probably be in the need of a walker or other walking aid.
However, this is not the case. Yea sure, occasionally I am in need of a cane, especially for whenever there is much walking to do.
But for the most part, the need for use of a cane all the time is surely not (yet) necessary.
Now, I will tell you why this timeframe of my disability has been thwarted. It's called advancement in research knowledge of the disease and availability of better medications to slow the disease progression.The CAUSE : " Research" . And how was this made available for Research to do?Answer: MONEY
Yes, Money is needed to further advance research. Not just for Multiple Sclerosis, but for many other diseases. Many of them being various types of Neurological diseases...
Find a cure for any one of these neurologic diseases and the walls may come tumbling down for all similar disease.
And so, this is why again, I must ask for your help while I ask for money to help fund research...
True the economy is worse than it has ever been for the majority of those who are reading this message.
But the fact remains,that Multiple Sclerosis will not sit idle awaiting for the economy to change.
My MS Walk date is soon approaching, in the middle of March.
This is an important day for me, as it marks another year that I have helped battle a disease which burdens me and hundreds of thousands of others.
