About Ruth Miller

Please consider supporting my fundraiser for Bike the US for MS. People living with MS are tested physically and mentally daily. That is why I chose Adventure Cycling Associations Western Express route for my MS fundraising bicycle ride. I will ride self-contained over our most challenging mountains and across vast deserts testing my strength and will power. Throughout my travels I will help spread awareness about Multiple Sclerosis  and Bike the US for MS fundraising. I will pay all of my own expenses.

Many in my family are living daily with the challenges of MS. My brother was diagnosed with MS in 1982 at age 21, my daughter was diagnosed 4 years ago at age 24 and my wife was diagnosed 6 weeks later at age 52. I am very proud of the strength they all have in their personal fight with MS.

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Most people are diagnosed with MS in their 20's & 30"s, women are 2-3 times more likely to get MS, and every hour a new person is diagnosed with MS. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving hope to people affected by the disease.

It has been frustrating for me wanting to help people with MS and wondering how I can effect the most changes with my own personal actions. That is why I have chosen to fund raise for Bike the US for MS. While riding the Western Express I have made myself available to help people living with MS with small outdoor projects at their home.Through my fundraising efforts and with your help we can make a difference for those living with MS. The money raised will go for research, financial aid, home modifications and care.
