I am finding that there are lots of strong warriors out there raising funds for some great charities. In addition to all the CFers I have met participating in Great Strides, people are out there balancing health conditions and staying committed to promoting their cause. I am going to start a series of blogs of all the warriors in our community living to make a difference.
The first warrior is a co-workers mom, Gail. She suffers from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and recently participated in a walk to raise funds for MS. MS is a disease that affects the central nervous system and cause problems with muscle control, strength, balance, feeling, vision, and thinking. I know her daughter, Mona, is very proud that she is able to participate in the walk and help make a difference to raise funds and awareness of this disease. Some may look at having this disease as an excuse not to walk; some physically can't. Gail doesn't let that stop her. As with all people with some type of disability, her journey should really inspire those without limitations. So many healthy people out there make excuses everyday to not exercise. Its great to see some people don't let anything stop them from living.
