THE MESSAGE FROM WORLD MS DAY

image

World MS Day (WMSD) is the day in which global awareness rises to help the people of the world to understand this young peoples 's disease which lasts their lifetime and impacts it so much.

This is the only global awareness campaign. It was started in 2009 because all of the organizations for MS worldwide and people with MS knew there was a need for people to understand the effects of this disease better. In its first year in  2009 there were 200 events in 67 countries. By last year  that number had risen to 73 countries.

In each of these countries they still have their own events like here in my hometown in Saratoga Springs NY.

 P1010086                                          The yearly MS Walk to raise money for research and projects to assist people with MS took place at the Saratoga Raceway on May 8, 2012. For more information on the event and more pictures go to : www.wiltonreport.com

But the global awareness day fills a need world wide. This year the theme is Living With MS. Go to : http://www.worldmsday.org/wordpress/

To find out more about individual people with MS world wide go to this site also. It has 1667 postcards from people living with MS with their messages to us.  http://www.youtube.com/user/worldmsday2012?feature=watch

And ending my blog with the inspiring song on video" WE Believe" sung by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston.
