Copaxone anniversary

Today is my second anniversary on Copaxone. I have not missed a dose in these two years and I have been so fortunate to not have any relapses. Woohoo! While everyone else is getting very excited about the approval of oral disease-modifying drugs, I am sticking with what works for me. As we say in Oklahoma, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Nonetheless, I am thrilled that oral meds will soon be available for those sisters and brothers who have difficulty or no response from injections.

I hope the summer finds everyone having at least one really fun thing to anticipate. Stay cool!

Walk MS Update

It was a beautiful day and I had a great time running the MS info table. People could take quizzes about MS and if they got a perfect score, they received a string of orange beads. Aside from info, we had all sorts of MS schwag that folks could buy, like bracelets, magnets, etc. A good time was had by all!

I raised $1,160.00 this year. Next year, I am going to form a team and attempt to raise $5,000! I think I may walk next year, too.

I want to thank everyone who supported me. I know the funds raised will be put to great use for those of us in Oklahoma with MS.

I encourage everyone to participate in Walk or Bike MS in some way. If you can't walk, volunteer. If you can't volunteer, be a fundraiser or donate. Every dollar helps!

It's Walk MS Time!

Hi, kids! Sorry for my lengthy absence, but things have been incredibly busy. I had to conserve my compromised myelin for other things, so the blog suffered.

Anyway, spring has arrived and with it Walk MS events are cropping up all over the country. I am volunteering at my local walk next Saturday for the second year. If you would like to contribute to my fundraising efforts, please visit my personal Walk MS page.

For those of you in the MS community, I hope your walks are successful and put us closer to our goal of ending MS.
