Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, 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, vary from one person to another and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected.
This is why I am riding.....To be a part of a great group of people that will cross the US on bicycles helping individuals with MS along the way, bring awareness and raise money to promote new treatments and advances in research giving hope to people affected by the disease.
I will also ride....because I can.
