When my daughter Carrissa was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis on February 11, 2013 our lives were forever changed. So many questions about what the future held for Carrissa, our family and what was next. Would Carrissa continue to get lesions on her brain and if she did would she have another episode, would it leave her paralyzed, would she walk again, would she lose her eye sight?
This is Carrissa’s story as seen through her mother’s eyes . . .
Would she be okay in school, were her grades going to slip because she couldn’t concentrate or focus, was she going to feel isolated and different than everyone else, was the school going to understand and help her become the best student that she could be? Would she be able to play the sports that she loved to play and how would this disease change how she played these sports? We had already been through so much since Mother’s Day of 2012.
-but our family won’t let MS win.
We knew that we had to get educated and do something about MS NOW! This is why we founded Mothers against MS — MAMS and are raising money to fund research to find a cure for MS. Please consider supporting or joining us at this very special event.
This event will benefit the National MS Society Upstate New York Chapter.
