I was diagnosed with M.S. in April 2012. For six months after I couldn't do much including simply walking to my car. I have what is called Relapsing Remitting multiple sclerosis. So I can walk now and I want to walk the Oregon Coast to raise awareness about M.S. I want to do it for selfish reason as well. I want the memory for next time I can't walk. Next time might be permanent. I would like to have the memory of seeing the beautiful coast up close and personal. I want to show my children persaverence. That even with an incurable disease, you can do big things.
There are millions of us out there and there is a notion that M.S. automatically puts you in a wheel chair. This is not true! People you encounter in your everyday lives struggle with this disease each and every day. The cashier at the convienient store, your accountant, even a nurse at your Dr.s office.
Please help me fullfill my dream, well one of them!
