Can you help me achieve my goal??
This year, I am participating in my first MS Read-a-thon. I am going to try to read as many books as possible during the month of August. It is my intention to raise a minimum of $1000 for this cause.
Just in case you didn’t know, I am named after my dad’s dad, Andrew Peter McDonald. Unfortunately, he passed away when my dad was only 16, so I never got the chance to meet him. He was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis before my dad was even born.
My dad told me that when he was a little boy, he used to participate in the MS Read-a-thon as well. He said that he used to do it every year. This year though, I am going to try read more books and raise more money than he ever did!!
I would really appreciate if you could help me achieve my goal. You could donate a fixed dollar amount, or you could pledge a certain amount per book that I read.
What Is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It is characterised by sclerosis a Greek word meaning scars. These scars occur within the central nervous system and depending on where they develop, manifest into various symptoms.
MS affects over 25,600 in Australia and more than two million diagnosed worldwide. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, but it can affect younger and older people too. Roughly three times as many women have MS as men.
