During the weekend of June 26-27, my family and I will be riding in the Bike MS ‘Harmon’s Best Dam Bike Ride’ event, benefitting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. We need your help!

Our family deals with the effects of multiple sclerosis every day. My wife, Donna, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis seven years ago and we desperately need to find the cause and cure for this awful disease. Please help us by donating to our cause or by joining our team and riding with us. We’d love to have you participate in any way you can, no matter how big or how small.

In case you haven’t seen it, here is a video that appears on Disney Channel, highlighting my daughters and why they ride for multiple sclerosis:

For more on why I ride and why I need your help, here is the letter I’ve sent to my friends and family asking for their support:

Dear Friends and Family,

As our family prepares to participate in this year’s Bike MS event the weekend of June 26-27, I’d once again like to ask for your support. But first, I’d like to ask you a couple of questions: Where were you in May and June of 2003? What were you doing? What do you remember?

Some recall President Bush giving his famous ‘Mission Accomplished’ speech. Others recall Martha Stewart’s federal indictment, Gilberto Simoni winning the Giro d’Italia, the San Antonio Spurs winning the NBA Finals, and the theatrical releases of The Matrix Reloaded, Finding Nemo, and the Italian Job.

I don’t remember any of that.

I remember a week of sightseeing in Manhattan and how Donna found it harder to walk as the days went on. I remember Meghan and Emily’s faces as they wondered why their mom couldn’t walk downstairs to breakfast. And I remember the doctor telling Donna that she had multiple sclerosis.

That was a terrible and pivotal time in our lives, but thanks to amazing advances in medicine, as well as Donna’s incredible attitude, she continues to do well. Unfortunately, we know too many others who aren’t, and that’s why we need your help.

Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.

I’ve seen the many ways The National Multiple Sclerosis Society uses funds collected from Bike MS events to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today.

I choose to fight this disease by riding a bike. You can help me by donating whatever you can afford. Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people with MS.

By clicking on this donation link, you can make a secure, tax-deductible donation in any amount. You can also send a check by postal mail to the address below (just put my name in the memo field of the check so it gets credited to my team). Please also feel free to forward this email to anyone you believe might be interested in joining our movement.

Together, we will help put an end to multiple sclerosis . . . and to bad memories.

Thank you for your support.

  6. I am a 64 year old female, I was diagnosed of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2008 (MRI), my symptoms started out with severe fatigue, poor balance, numbness, double vision, heat intolerance and anxiety. I was unable to go back to work, I tried Betaseron for about 6 years. Tried every shot available, all made me sick.

    In November 2015, I started on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Herbal formula from NewLife Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my MS condition. I used the NewLife MS Herbal formula for a total time period of 4 months, it totally reversed my Multiple Sclerosis. I had a total decline of all symptoms including vision problems, numbness and others. Sometimes, i totally forget i ever had MS.

    Visit NewLife Clinic web-site ww w. newlifeherbalclinic. com. I am very pleased with this treatment. I eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly. My attitude is extremely positive.
