MS Bike Ride Solicitation Sorry.

Since I was diagnosed on my birthday 6 years ago it has been an uphill battle but I am winning so far.  I do hit speed bumps along the way but my home team Clark, Thomas and Brayden help me keep going giving me kisses when I need them, encouraging words when I am down or just "don't wanna do it"  Without them I would be a self pitying lump on the ground.  My parents are rocks they can tell when I don't feel good but just looking at me I am so glad they were able to get a condo in Utah it is nice to have backup even if they are 45 minutes away.  That is just my immediate home team, my away team, all of you who support me and continue to ask "so how's it going"  Are important as well.  I would love it if you could help support me on this ride it is going to be hard but I want to do it, I want to prove that I can. MS will not stop me it will just make it harder to accomplish my goals and this is my current goal!!!

I am currently on one of the medications that they speak of below.  I am taking Rebif and this year I had tried something, not intentionally I might add.  I was not taking my dose as was prescribed.  I was doing two shots a week not three.  It was going fine for about 4 months.  So of course I started thinking maybe I don't need this medication I hate the shots anyway, they burn and I dread them when it is time.  Well then the weather got hotter 90 degrees to be exact, and I found that I did need the medication.  I am fine when it is snowing or a nice chilly 72 or colder.  When it gets warmer one conversation at a time thank you very much.  My concentration just goes out the window.  Oh and did I mention I have a very short fuse as well.  I know I am screaming at the kids to much when the dog runs into his kennel.

So if you could donate anything even just $5 it would get me closer to my goal.  And if you want some lemonade to go with it come on by the house and Brayden will serve you a cup. :)  Thank you.

A word from the MS Society...
Multiple sclerosis has been around for centuries, taking away people's ability to feel, see and even move. Since 1993 (almost 20 years), TEN new disease-modifying drugs have been made available and dozens more are in the pipeline - most recent therapy was just approved on March 27, 2013! Where there was once no hope, there is now huge momentum towards successful treatments and a cure.

I'm making some momentum of my own for the cause by riding in the 27th Annual Bike MS, and I'd love your help in making a difference.

By clicking on the link below, you can make a secure, tax-deductible donation in any amount for me and my team. You can also send a check in by postal mail to the address below--just put my name in the memo field of the check so it gets credited to my team.

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!
