Multiple Sclerosis Awareness

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. World-wide, MS affects about 2.5 million people ( No two cases are exactly alike, and symptoms vary considerably from one individual to another.

Don, my husband, has Multiple Sclerosis. I do not blog about it often, probably because it isn't as "in my face" as Cody's autism is. HOWEVER, Don recently went in for more tests and, I am happy to say that his neurologist gave him a good report.

Last summer I wrote a post about attending a Multiple Sclerosis event with my husband where Jordan Sigalet, a retired Canadian Ice Hockey Goaltender, was the guest speaker. Jordan was born in 1981, the same year as Cody.

To show support of MS awareness, I am reposting Jordan's clip for those of you who may have missed it last year.

We do the MS 150 every year, I'm glad Don has 'passed' his tests for lack of a better term. :)
