Message from Chris Williams

My daughter, Rachel, recognized a very difficult anniversary in June 2014.  June marked the one year anniversary of her Transverse Myelitis attack. This attack and her resultant injury has changed her life, and our lives, forever. For us, some of these changes are for the better.  No doubt.  I know that we have a much greater capacity for caring for others needs.  Not just Rachel's, but other people around us.  Also, it has given us a greater appreciation for how blessed we are NOW.  Not just what life was like before, but how blessed we are RIGHT NOW.

However, for Rachel, these changes make her daily life much more of a struggle.  Will she overcome?  Yes!  I believe she will!

The year 2014 also represents the 20th anniversary of The Transverse Myelitis Association. The goals and the programs of the TMA have been accelerated and intensified over the past couple of years.  From research, to the development of new specialists and new centers of excellence, to improved medical education and clinical care, to community education programs, to support networks to quality of life camps, the work of the TMA continues to expand, reaching larger and larger numbers.  It reached Rachel this summer as she was able to attend TM camp in Kentucky.  The memories of that powerful experience will last a life time!

However, we need more resources to do more good for the victims of ADEM, TM and NMO.  Everyone, please get involved.  Your willingness to engage your friends and families in this campaign will make all of the difference for Rachel and for thousands of people like her.  It is time for us to change the world and to heal the world for those people and their loved ones who suffer with these rare and devastating neuro-immune disorders.

Please invest in research and the future of the TMA by joining the campaign.
