Having multiple sclerosis means that you may suddenly have blurry vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Or that you may not always be able to walk, let alone ride a bike. The symptoms of MS are different, and devastating, for everyone – the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.
#WHY I RIDE
I ride for my MEEMERS. That’s my nickname for my mom. Hence, the team name LOVE4MEEMERS. My mom’s a really lucky gal. She is always surrounded by people who love and care about her. She is the sweetest, most inspirational person I’ve ever met. In 1997 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, however she has never let MS define her, she is my mom who happens to have MS. Sometimes when I find myself doing things I wonder…WHERE did I ever get these amazing qualities and I quickly am reminded. Everything I am and everything I do has a direct correlation to my mom. She is absolutely superb and I am motivated to do anything in my power to help fundraise to find a cure for MS…
#HOW I HELP
One of the ways I help make this happen is through campaigning for BIKE MS. I have participated in many other community events: WALK MS, BIKE MS and other fundraising events.
#HOW YOU CAN HELP
I hope you will join my team or if you are not a biker, make a donation no matter how big or small. Every bit helps and I believe we are on our way to a cure. I cannot wait until the day when my mom and others alike can wake up in the morning and be able to walk again (painlessly), dance again, & hopefully for some to run again!!! Please join us in our efforts. It means SOOOO very much to the Wine Family. 🙂
#WHY YOU SHOULD SPONSOR ME
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from the MS Bike Tour to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can fight this disease by simply riding a bike, because we have chosen to help thousands of people through a contribution to the MS Bike Tour, we are now getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, “You have MS.”
As mentioned above there is currently no cure for MS. There is only medication that can offset the pain and numbness. Wouldn’t you like to be included in the efforts to fundraise & find a cure for the millions of people in the world who are being paralyzed from this illness? I know I do. We appreciate every penny and every moment of your time spent reading about MS and educating yourself.
HOPING FOR A CURE,
Shaggy Lamb Productions, where words are our way
