"My biggest reason for walking for the cure for MS is the love of my life, my fiance Mike! MS is one of those things that not too many people know too much about and I think that needs to change! I truly believe there is a cure out there somewhere and I hope and pray it is found soon so no one else has to suffer. Thank you for creating the National MS Society and putting on these events so we can all make a difference!"
