8 years ago, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, an auto-immune disease that attacks the central nervous system and can have a multitude of symptoms including impaired movement, loss of vision, and constant nerve pain. Instead of letting this news slow me down, I started moving. I found that practicing yoga helped keep me calm, responsive, physically active—healthy.
As I continue to fight against this disease for myself and others, I have three goals; 1. Raise money to support organizations that are working round the clock to advocate for MS patients, and fund research for better treatments and a cure. 2. Spread awareness and get people involved. 3. Stay healthy.
In an effort to stay healthy, I have decided to commit myself to 108 Days of Yoga. In an effort to end this disease, I am asking people to consider donating $108 to the National MS Society. You can team up with two more friends and donate $36 each, challenge your boss to match you at $56, or donate the $108 yourself. Together, I am hoping to raise $10,800 by the time I complete my #108daysforMS. #BendoverbackwardsMS
