Well the marathon is over, and as team mates send in the final donations that still trickle in, and recover from the marathon, we want to thank our donors who supported the Run to Stop MS 2012 fundraiser!

I thought I would share with you a letter from a MS family member, shared with us by our MS society contact, Courtney. I think it speaks to how important your contribution is to helping those with MS and their families. Your gift means so much to them. Thank you for all you do! Sandy

"....Lastly, as you recover from the marathon I wanted to share a thank you letter we received from a woman whose husband has MS. The money you raised provides her with the opportunities she is so thankful for.

“I just felt the need to share how much the respite grant programs have meant to me. For a long time I had only thought of someday being able to get away for a weekend. Then one day I called and had some questions about equipment and ended up talking with an MS Society Staff member, who explained about the respite care program and I was able to attend a quiet retreat weekend at our church’s Bible Camp. Between taking care of my husband and all that includes, all his cares and meds and teaching full time it has been wonderful to have a restful weekend. I am also paying for a lady to come in every day to help me care for my husband so I can keep teaching. I guess what I’m trying to say is Thank You! Thank you so much for all you have done. It helped me so much, and helped me to be a better care giver to “my M.S. patient”. Thank you again and God bless you!” Statement from client.

Thank you for making it possible for us to help her!

We are just two short weeks until the TCM Marathon and I wanted to stop and thank you again for your donation to the MS Society! I am within $460 dollars of my goal, and as I sent out reminder emails to everyone I know, I want to acknowledge you and thank you once again for your strong and early support to Stop MS! Enjoy the wonderful weekend and if you see one person, think of spreading the word about the great research going on to help those who have MS today, an ultimately to find a cure to end MS.

All the best!

CROWDRISING SINCE: Feb 16, 2012
Stuff About Me:

Raising funds to find a cure for MS while at the TCM Marathon - what could be better? Having them find the cure of course!! MS affected the lives of my family, my Mom was diagnosed when she was in her early twenties, and my great Aunt was in her fifites (very unusual). Mom had a particularly fast advancing disease course and was 52 when she died from complications of the disease. While playing badmitton she discovered she couldn't run for the birdie, that was her first clue that something was wrong.  I am running for my Mom and so that some day another young Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Daughter, Son, Niece, Nephew, or Friend, doesn't have to make that same first life changing discovery.

Make your charitable donation this year be to find a cure for MS!

 

Thanks!

Sandy
