Week 9: Multiple Sclerosis Society

Wednesday, May 7, 2003

My donation this week is to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. My sister was recently diagnosed with MS, and I’ve really admired her strength as she has adjusted and accepted the diagnosis. Despite painful shots and uncomfortable side effects, she has been remarkably strong and positive. She and her husband have even decided they’re not going to worry about side effects any more… they’re gonna stop putting it off and go on that cruise for her birthday! I’m very proud of my sister, and I hope any contribution I make can help medical research on treatments for MS.
