|Bike MS - Your help is needed
||[Jul. 2nd, 2013|01:58 pm]
Okay friends, it's the beginning of July and I have raised less that $500 for Bike MS. This is going to be tough fundraising year because I will be away from the computer for the last part of July.|
It's tough to be asked for donations year after year, but it's a lot tougher to live in a wheelchair, fighting hard against the slow loss of the abilities that most of us take for granted. MS is a vicious, inexorable disease.
Amazing progress has been made since my grandfather was felled by MS. He went from a bold sea captain to a shell of a man in a mere 18 months--and then lived in that state, frustrated and miserable, for another decade.
Thanks to the medical research done in the ensuing decades, the disease has been slowed, but it still attacks far too many people. In the past year two more people I know have been diagnosed.
Please help to fight this terrible disease, in what ever way you can. A few dollars by a lot of people quickly adds up.
Donations can be made here. And thank you again.

How long until the end to donate?
I would love to donate but finances are being stupid and I don't know what my MRI co pay will be. If I can I want to donate esp since I have MS and would like to know when the cut off date is.

Re: How long until the end to donate?
The race is August 4, but donations can be accepted all the way to the end of September. Thanks so much.
Thanks for the reminder... my meds make me all brain foggy
