Welcome friends. It has been a while since I last worked on the story page. Although I am about ready to post a new story, I want to take time to try a new idea. Most, if not all of my readers know I have Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that certainly changed my life.

Many of you may also know because I decided to tame the beast within a new plan for my body was needed. In January I started to work out and swim at our new YMCA in order to lose weight and gain mobility. It has been amazing to see and feel the change in my body.

The National MS Society helps us in numerous ways by donating equipment and aiding in research to find a cure for this wretched disease. In my case, because of my age and the progression of the MS there is little doctors can do, but for those who are younger, much has been achieved by slowing down the disease. For me, it is exercise. For younger individuals a wide and varied amount of help is available.

I can not walk the two (or four ) miles yet, but I am volunteering to help those who can in Massilon, Ohio on April 26th. I am going to use the Internet to raise money. This is a first. Can you help with a donation? Can you pass this website onto a friend? Whatever you feel in your heart is a good donation is welcome. This is not for myself as an individual, but for all who are fighting for a better tomorrow.

Make the check out to the National MS Society. If you want a receipt other than your check, let me know.

I am asking you to join the movement by making a contribution to support our efforts!!!

Thank you and sincerely. God bless you for helping.

Sorry the epledge does not work on my site. I will try and fix it but until that time the checks will have to be sent to the above address.

P.S. The photo is our 2007 team

That's a great cause and a wonderful idea. I don't have any money right now, but I will epledge some money after next payday (Thursday)!

God bless you and those others helping to fight this disease!

Thank you Beerme.

I felt kind of strange doing things that way (Internet) but why not, the national chapter does that too.

Pass it around in case anyone else wants to pledge.

P.S. If nobody does, they still are my friends.

FWIW, there's an envelope for that cause in the stack awaiting my income tax refund...

Thanks! A few weeks back I MC'd an event to raise money for a group that I sit on the board of. At the end of the evening I was the auctioneer-ette. There I rattled away at a break neck speed to raise money for a great cause

I feel like I am still playing the part. But, sigh, I am only trying to raise a bit of money for a great cause once again. This time a bit slower.

To others. This is the way our MS society works. We do the work and only ask you give a little. Remember, it is a tax deduction.

I have been on the road and have had less time to visit the cafe. I saw your request at SF today so here I am.
A check will be in the mail in the next couple of days.
One of my favorite visits with a good friend of mine was two years ago when I worked as his support team on a bike ride from Houston to Austin for MS. Fun and worthy, the perfect combination.

A thousand thank-you's for your donation. I am terrible at raising money and would rather sit in a room with rabid Hedgehogs, than ask for donations....but... I know the money goes to a good cause
