You Are invited to the 3rd Annual MS Fundraising Dinner on May 29th 2016


















Over the last 15 years, I have worked with many patients with MS. The journey is like no other. The limitations can become overwhelming. The desire to see progress at times may seem impossible. Your Mind becomes your best friend when your body becomes your enemy. When asked to support this cause 3 years ago, I knew that this was important especially with Tionna being diagnosed at age 17 with an illness that still has no cure. This year I will be speaking about Mental Wellness, resiliency and what is needed to conquer living with Medical Challenges. You are invited to the 3rd Annual MS Fundraising Dinner on May 29th.

Learn more about this event and about Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an 
unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system which is composed of the brain and spinal cord. The disease attacks the
myelin which is a protective covering wrapped around the nerves of the central nervous system. This disease can cause various symptoms or little symptoms but bear in mind that most serve would include balance and mobility issues that can cause a person to be wheelchair bound.
For years, I  assumed  that  those from an  African descent  are less likely to develop Multiple sclerosis (MS),   but a new study suggests the opposite may be true.








This is a disease that affects all racial and ethnic groups, the researcher told Reuters Health.

THE STORY OF RUTH THE WARRIOR
West Humber Collegiate a school in Toronto's West End has brought forth some real fighters who today 20 years later have made a way to show exceptional strength. High School is a time full of struggles but none like what my classmate had to face. Back then in the 90's illness and disease were words unknown to us as teenagers except for a dear friend of mine name Ruth.  Ruth   had to face the journey of being diagnosed in High School with MS at the age of 17.

Multiple sclerosis is a complex disease which is most often diagnosed in young adults, aged 15 to 40. MS is unpredictable
