Walk MS 2014

My first Walk MS was October 25th 2014. Following a relapse that left me in a place that I felt I need to reach out to others with MS.  That was and is my mission to reach out to others with MS and raise awareness. I hoped that I could be of support, a shoulder to lean on, a positive inspiration or just make someone laugh. I’ve done other walks and I’ve been involved in many other charity events. This walk was different. I wasn’t prepared for how emotional it would be. I had this overwhelming feeling that I’m not even sure how to describe when I realized I was surrounded by people who were going through the same experiences and struggles. All these people were here for the same reason and with the same goal.

I won 3 awards at this walk. I am proud that I was able to raise funds for programs that help those living with MS. That is a great feeling but  seeing and meeting these people was a true inspiration. What they gave me that day was the real gift. The knowledge that I am not alone and a deeper understanding of how important this is.

  1. Your compassion towards others of our illness speaks great things about you. Have you heard of patientslikeme.com? It’s a free support group for all chronic and fatal diseases. I know they would benefit from your humor, your words and your attitude. Keep on being a beautiful butterfly.

    1. Aww thank you so much for the kind words. I have heard of patientslikeme. To be honest I’m not sure if I have visited the site or not but I will make a point of doing so. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.
