About Veronica Trollman and Linette Shaughnessy
Thank you so much for visiting our page and taking the time to look at our site. We would like to implore you to give some money to a great cause that will benefit people in need and help fund research for Multiple Sclerosis.
We are a couple of awesome travel nurses taking over the US! We met and became great friends on our first travel assignment 2 years ago in El Paso, Texas. Since then, we have collectively worked in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oklahoma City, Houston, and Seattle. While in Houston, any free moment that we had, we were exploring the city on our bikes. Then in Seattle one of our favorite activities was riding next to Lake Union on our way to and from work. We are excited that there is a way to combine our passions for cycling and traveling with helping sick people by volunteering and funding research for MS on our 2016 pacific coast ride from Seattle to San Diego.
While in Seattle, Linette read an article by an experienced rehab nurse that described how inpatient rehab nursing has changed over the last 36 years. The most memorable part of the paper was about how the number of patients with MS in the hospital for inpatient rehab has dramatically decreased after 1996, when 2 medications (Capaxone and Avonex) that help slow the progression of the disease were approved by the FDA. Since then even more medications and treatments have become available due to continuing research. It's amazing how relatively recent these advancements were, and how much farther we still have to go toward treating people with this disease. That is why raising awareness and funding research is vital and you can be a part of that change by donating. Any contributions to help this cause would be greatly appreciated.
