Birgit's 50th and Ben's 60th Birthday Celebration

October 9, 2016

Support Me

Thank you for sharing in our celebration and supporting our fundraising efforts for the MS Society.  This celebration is an opportunity to raise funds to support people living with Multiple Sclerosis.

I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for the past 11 years and am lucky that it is progressing slowly and that I have the support of my husband Ben in administering my injections every second day and being there for me when I need it every day. 

Every week, 20 people are newly diagnosed with this chronic disease. It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely with people often unable to do the everyday things we usually take for granted, like not being able to see properly (or at all), struggling with fatigue, having trouble getting out of bed or walking or living a life without pain. 

Thanks to your generous support, the funds we raise will allow people living with Multiple Sclerosis to access vital MS support services.

Thank you again for your support, it is greatly appreciated!

Birgit & Ben.
