I was diagnosed with MS 45 years ago. I had a son eight months old, and a daughter two years later.
I AM...after my husband left us, I became as social as paralysis would allow me.
I CAN...I was in a wheelchair when I began classes at a local college, and earned a masters in social work in 1997.
I WILL...appreciate the gift from my children. A car with hand controls & a made to order WC will help keep me in community.
I gave up the my open mind thinking of fear itself was my only competition. MS changed my life on that now it's time to go back.
I AM at war with MS.
I CAN now see that losing a battle should lead to surrendering the war.
I WILL fight the war to the very end.
As a RN with MS, I decided to facilitate SHG, known as MS CHALLENGERS. That was 18 years ago. I continue to educate and empower.
I AM a Woman with Strong Inner Strengh and Tenacity.
I CAN continue to Educate and Empower individuals in the self-help group, MS Challenger's
I WILL demonstrate a CAN DO attitude in the face of Adversity and continue to share my experience, strength and hope to others
