The Two Bills Drive community has been my primary sponsor for the MS Walk in Rochester, NY to Support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

 

Since 2004 WE have raised over $18,000!

 

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has excellent ratings as far as the percent of donations used for their mission vs the cost of “overhead” for salaries and facilities, according to the National Health Council Standards of Excellence Certification Program.

 

The 2017 MS Walk is Sunday May 7th at Genesee Valley Park in Rochester, NY.

GIVE if you can - A SINGLE dollar helps. No gift is too small, or too large, and all donations are equal in my eyes! *-)

Personal stuff:

 

Update - for various reasons related to my MS, I was forced to stop working in May, 2015. I applied for SSDI and was approved in EIGHT working days! Do not be concerned. I am doing well and will NOT let this stop me. I am happy I was able to work for over 40 years at various jobs - half of that time I worked knowing I had MS.

 

History - I was DIAGNOSED with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 1994. I know now that I had MS before then, because there were times when things were “not quite right”. I would tire easily, and walk with a slight limp. My vision would be blurry and I sometimes felt like I was seeing double if I did not concentrate on an image. The symptoms would come and go, and were not stopping me from doing the things I wanted to do. But the official date it was confirmed as MS was June 1994. The nature of a relapsing-remitting disease is that it can “come and go”. 

 

I still walk funny  :w00t:  but the medications to keep my MS in relapse have improved from syringe self injections, to a daily pill. It has also been a couple years since my last major relapse, that required an MRI scan, IV steroid pulse, and Prednisone.

 

Keep in mind I have the BENIGN form of MS. Others have it much worse, so I do not complain (much  :rolleyes:).

Two Bills Drive has not really picked up on this in 2017. To be fair there are a LOT of fund raisers out there. 

 

I have $410 and will make a few more pitches before May 7th.

Thanks to my sponsors!

 

Surprisingly, only two sponsors from TBD this year. Off The Wall is usually my biggest asset.  

 

I understand there are fundraisers every week in every town.

If you don't sponsor me, pick one of them and "pay it forward".

 

If you want to sponsor me, the clock is ticking!    :w00t:

 

I appreciate all my sponsors support - the current total is $560! 

God Bless you all!
