MS Walk 2013

Click Here to Donate!
This will be our third year participating in the Murfreesboro MS Walk. This year hold extra meaning due to the fact that we'll be walking in honor and memory of my mother, Vickie Opel, who lost her battle to MS 11/23/12.

My mom was diagnosed with MS in 1978, two years before I was born.  So, I spent my whole life watching her in various stages of the disease: in and out of the hospital, various stages of mobility from walking on her own to needing a cane for assistance to time in a wheelchair or motorized scooter.  I also saw the toll that it took on my father, her self-appointed caregiver in looking out for her, all the doctor appointments and medicinal treatments, and just the worry and concern for her health.

I am blessed to have had her in my life and I really want to do my best to raise money for the MS Society to help all those who have been diagnosed, their families, and to hopefully, ultimately, be able to be a part of finding a cure for MS.

I would be honored if you would consider donating to our team and/or sharing our link for others to see/donate (click either image to go to our team page).  Thanks so much!
