Thank you for all the BP MS riders!
My friend Kaare:
When we moved back to Houston during the summer of 2015, Jakob my oldest son started playing football, or soccer as they call it here in the US.
Jakob quickly got many new friends and amongst those Noah. I immediately noticed that Noah’s dad did not walk or move very well, and the culprit for this, was the terrible disease Multiple Sclerosis.
Having spent countless hours on the sidelines together cheering on our sons, I have witnessed firsthand how debilitated this disease is , and I want to ensure that I do what I can , to support the fight against MS. My tiny contribution is to ride the MS150 from Houston to Austin , April 28/29.
Mario has been through a very tough set of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) and you can read more about the treatment and the challenges MS imposes on this life, on his blog. https://strongformario.com/.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, blindness and more. MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve.
Believe it or not, pedaling a bike could be the answer to a world free of MS. Mile by mile, dollar by dollar, Bike MS provides much needed funding not only to research, but to ensuring people affected by MS can live their best lives. I just signed up for this year’s ride and I’d really appreciate your support in my fundraising efforts.
Your contribution will help the National MS Society fund groundbreaking research and life-changing programs for people living with MS. And ultimately, end MS forever.
Mario, Noah and Trinity
Thank you so much!
