    Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Tuesday evening's webinar on Emerging Therapies. The speaker was fabulous and I left with much information. If this is an indication of future Can Do MS webinars, I will sign up for all! Thank you again for organizing the webinar and keeping the MS community abreast of needed information.

    Can Do MS Announces Leadership Transition

    Posted Friday, February 25, 2011

    Can Do MS today announces that CEO, Kim Sharkey, has accepted a position of Director of Development for Shaw Regional Cancer Center and will be leaving the organization as of March 11, 2011. In Kim’s eight year tenure with Can Do MS, she has been instrumental in diversifying the revenue streams of the organization most notably by expanding our national focus in fundraising through the Combined Federal Campaign and significantly expanding our foundation and corporate grants program, in increasing our program offerings to people living with MS, collaborating on both a national and local level with other MS organizations, and improving operational excellence as demonstrated by our consistently high ratings by BBB Wise Giving Alliance and Charity Navigator.  All of us at Can Do MS wish Kim the very best in her new position and want to thank her for her dedicated service.

    Katie DeMore has been appointed the Head of Operations for Can Do MS and will be responsible for day-to-day operations of Can Do MS.  The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors will support Katie while the Board institutes a national search for a new CEO.

    Since joining the senior management team at Can Do MS, Katie has demonstrated her leadership and value to the team. Working closely with Katie will be Kim Goodrich, Director of Development and Communications, and Anna Cotton, Director of Programs, to continue to leverage the powerful legacy and principles of our founder, Jimmie Heuga, and help people living with MS transform challenges into possibilities.

    Can Do MS is a leading provider of innovative lifestyle empowerment programs for people with MS and their families.  Can Do MS has helped thousands of people living with MS reclaim a sense of dignity, control and freedom by empowering them with the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to transform challenges into possibilities.
