Fighting MS and Working to Find the Cure

What would it be like to have Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as a teenager? My cousin, Lisa, was diagnosed with MS several decades ago, and she has fought the disease valiantly. There still isn’t a cure to this disease, but that doesn’t stop her.

Lisa still chooses to keep researching new treatments, to keep reaching out to others, and to still have hope. She has found a new treatment she is going to try, but she needs help gathering the funds to pay for it. Check out this GoFundMe page with more of her story and to help her out: Lisa’s GoFundMe

Her brother also has been having a football game the day after Thanksgiving for about 40 years now to raise money to help find a cure; if you want to find out more, check out this link: 2016 Turkey Bowl to fight MS

In light of all that Lisa and others like her have gone through, let’s stop and remember how many things we have to be thankful for, and let’s help them!

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
