First of all, a big congrats on the big 10,000! That’s fantastic!
I would LOVE some help fundraising! Last year my husband did the Bike MS and I said I never would be able to do it. I was diagnosed in October of 1999 and I had been using my cane for the last two years, since I progressed after each of my two children. Well, some medication changes and I am no longer using my cane! I started training for it after I “got my legs back”. I am up to 24 miles! I signed up to do 35 miles the first day and 15 the second. It has been a long hard road for us the past few years. Our son was born early (emergency c-section) and had developmental delays. He was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and ADD as well as numerous delays. It has been hard taking care of a child with special needs when I have a chronic illness, but I have a wonderful husband and great support system of family and friends.
My goal for doing the Bike MS is to not only to raise money, but to show our children that no matter what is different about you, you can do ANYTHING! Sometimes it may be different than the “norm” or it may take a lot longer, but it can be done. The motto in our house is “Never say ‘I can’t’. Just ask ‘How can I?'”.
