My daughter has Multiple Sclerosis, or MS. Her name is Kim. She was diagnosed several months ago. She's 42 years old, married, and has one son. My heart breaks every time I think about her, which is just about all the time. TW friends, I'm asking for your help.
Here's a little information about Kim. Fortunately, she is not confined to a wheelchair. At least not yet. Our goal is to keep that from happening. Kim has lesions on her spine, and on her brain. Her auto immune system is being assaulted by this disease. She is now more vulnerable to all germs, even the common cold will be very hard on her. Every day, Kim injects medication into her body that will not kill the disease, but will hopefully slow it down so that she can live her life with less pain, numbness, and fatigue. Every day for the rest of her life, the shots will cause her to endure large welts, redness, and painful injection sites. Every day. Until research finds a way to halt MS, Kim has no choice butto endure the reactions to this harsh medication. So far, the medication has been no help at all. None.
Like I said, I'm asking for your help. First and foremost, your prayers would be appreciated. Prayers work sometimes when nothing else seems to work. Also, each year there is a national Walk to show support for, and to raise funds for, Multiple Sclerosis research. The Walk MS is on different dates in different cities around the country. We're located in the Oklahoma City area, and our Walk is scheduled for Saturday, May 4th. If you are going to be in the Oklahoma City area on May 4th, please join our team. My daughter's team is Kim's Fuzzy Fighters.
TW friends, even if you can't join us on May 4th, please donate. Not to me, not even to Kim. Donate to the National MS Society, in Kim's team name. Even a small amount will help. Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to read this post, because it means you obviously care about Kim and her fight against MS.
I hope to see you (and your Tacomas) on Saturday, May 4th.
