"Since my diagnosis in the 80's, my passion has been to help find a cure or the cause of this devastating disease. My Neurologist, Dr. Barbour was retiring and suggested I see a Neurologist at TISCH International MS Research Center in NYC. I currently see Dr. Armistead Williams there. I found a home for the care and struggle with my MS. So what better way to help to follow my passion then to fundraise for TISCH. This event on April 7th at Shawnee will be epic in achieving my goal and passions to help eradicate MS. I feel that having a disability gives me the ability to share insight on a subject that no one wants to talk about. We hope you all come out and join the conversation and join us" says subject of the Pulitzer Prize nominated book "Call To Witness".
