A Note From My Brother Paul To Everyone Who Sponsored Their MS Walk
On the fund-raising front, team "Wheels and Heels Against MS" raised over $11,000!! For those of you who participated in my "Recycling for a Cure" effort, the final can and bottle tally was just over $500. (those nickels sure do add up!) I'll be looking to raise that recycling bar even higher next year.
Thank you all so very much for your support this year! Your never-ending generosity never ceases to amaze and inspire. Throughout these tough economic times, you continue to reach down deep and lend your support. For that, I cannot thank you enough.
I also wanted to share some very recent and exciting news from the National MS Society. Just last week, they announced that the FDA has approved the first oral disease-modifying drug to help fight MS!! The drug's name is Gilenya and will be available via prescription in the next few weeks.
You can read more details regarding this medication as well as other advances on the National MS Society's web site: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/index.aspx
Thank you all, again, for helping to fund this research and for the very important role you all play in the battle against Multiple Sclerosis.
