Hi friends . . .

As some of you know, my mom - one of my best friends in the whole world - has Multiple Sclerosis. Web MD defines MS as "a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord resulting in loss of muscle control, vision, balance, and sensation (such as numbness). With MS, the nerves of the brain and spinal cord are damaged by one's own immune system. Thus, the condition is called an autoimmune disease."

There is no cure for MS, but there is constant research into trying to find one.

Saturday, April 28th is the MS walk in my area. My step-dad and a good friend of the family will be walking the 5 miles in her honor, and she - that sassy lady - will be attempting the one-mile route with her cane, Emily, if necessary.

If you're interested, and I hope you are, you can sponsor her journey!
