WE DID IT!
November 10, 2016
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I have multiple sclerosis (MS) and I am running the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon.
I'm running to raise funds hoping that as a result of research something will be developed that can guarantee me that my disease will not progress. I'm running to support the amazing work that Tisch is doing on Multiple Sclerosis and I'm really hoping that their research will discover how to reverse the damage that have caused so many of my fellow MSers to be wheelchair bound.
Tisch is on the right track. When talking about their stem cell study, Dr. Sadiq stated: “Repair and regeneration is possible. We have a patient who no longer needs her cane, one who has transitioned from a motorized scooter to taking steps with a walker and another who has discontinued their bladder medication as those symptoms have dramatically improved. This is the first treatment that improves established disability in patients with progressive MS and shows us there is hope that a future treatment is possible."
We need to help to turn hopes into the cure for this disease. I have MS and I am running for those who can not.
Thank you for your support.
