A Worthy Cause

Five months ago our life changed drastically when Season was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, chronic, degenerative disorder that affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord. Myelin, the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates nerves and facilitates the conduction of nerve impulses is the initial target of inflammatory destruction in multiple sclerosis.

It's been an up hill battle, but Season is a very strong woman and a committed fighter so I have no doubt she will eventually win the war against this disease.

She has a big heart and she isn't just concerned about herself. Season doesn't want anyone else to have to go through the same issues she has on a day to day basis in her fight against MS.

Recently she has formed a team for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Walk MS fundraising event.

Walk MS is the signature fundraising event of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. By participating in Walk MS you can know that you've shared a remarkable achievement with over two hundred and fifty thousand other walkers in more than seven hundred cities across the country, but most importantly, you'll be making a difference by raising essential funds for research and services for people with MS.

We will be personally participating in the walk to raise money to help find a cure for MS. This year’s goal is to raise over a million dollars. She has made a personal commitment to raise two thousand five hundred dollars and is hoping to surpass that amount.

This where you come in, she needs help to do it!

You can help in the efforts to end this devastating disease.

Please consider supporting with a tax-deductible donation to help her reach her fundraising goal.

You guys have no idea how much your donations mean to me. Thank you to everyone who has sent something in or said an extra little prayer for me. I am hoping one day soon we can find a cure for this horrible disease.
