Tag Archives: Walk MS

Life as a dad with MS isn’t easy, life as a dad with MS can be hard but, I WILL carry my boy into the end zone.

Every hour of every day, someone else is diagnosed with MS. MS defined my 31st birthday. No parties,  my present was a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis after a week in the hospital. It may have hit me harder than normal. Within 6 months my mood swings and heat sensitivity had cost me my career. In the next 2 years I’d lose equilibrium, endurance, and see my feelings of worthlessness, and my flawed attempts to make myself feel worth something, take more of my health and my family away from me. I don’t ever want another human being to suffer all I have or worst. I don’t ever want my son to give up, like I first did.That’s why I registered for Walk MS 2012 and that’s why I’m asking you to support my fund raising efforts with a tax-deductible donation.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS but they can’t do it without our help. It’s faster and easier than ever to support this cause that’s so important to me. Simply click on the link at the bottom of this message. If you prefer, you can send your contribution to the address listed below.

Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people with MS. I appreciate your support and look forward to letting you know how I do.

Day 289- Left Hip
Today was a bitter sweet day. I had to cancel taking part in today’s, this year’s Walk MS. It hurt to have to miss this event to raise awareness, I’d been “training” for the walk by using my own two legs and cane to get around everywhere for the last 5 months. I said NAY to the scooter at the supermarkets and WalMart, it got tough at times but, I muscled through thinking of the Walk MS event. So, not being able to participate today was a let down.

On to the sweet side. Today was my niece’s daughter’s 1st birthday. Fun time was had by all. They had a Build-A-Bear station set up. Actual Build-A-Bear, not a knock off. They had magicians, they had cotton candy spinners, a Strawberry Shortcake character running around, it was a wild first birthday. Seeing all the fun my little guy had at the party was awesome. So it was definitely a sweet ending.

Be well, stay well, no regrets.
