Can You Help Team 'No More Secs!' to Help Others?
By apietrangelo on March 06, 2012
The number of people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) increases every hour of every day. We've formed Team "No More Secs!" to help the National Multiple Sclerosis Society fund research to unlock the mysteries of MS and to improve the lives of those living with MS.
I was diagnosed with MS in 2004. My husband, Jim, and I participated in our first MS Walk that year, and many since. We missed last year's walk because I was undergoing aggressive treatment for triple-negative breast cancer at the time. This year I'm apparently cancer-free and enjoying a remission from MS. If ever there was a year for us to walk, this sure is it! How could we not?
About MS Walk Team "No More Secs!"
This comment from a reader captured perfectly the reason we chose to publish a book about life with MS (No More Secs! Living, Laughing & Loving Despite Multiple Sclerosis):
"What a nice book. I laughed, I cried, I connected to you in a way I've connected with no one else. It was so nice to know I'm not alone."
We're not alone. That's never more obvious than on Walk MS Day, so we named our team after the book.

If you can't donate or walk this year, just send us a note of support and encouragement -- you'd be surprised how valuable kind words can be. Need more info? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
