“The 23rd annual Walk MS Salt Lake City featured something new and noteworthy: X Games Gold Medalist and professional freeskier Tom Wallisch did the walk — wearing ski boots. At first, he thought of it as an icebreaker, a way to meet people and hear their stories. Then it became more than that, he says, a way to put himself in the shoes of someone with multiple sclerosis. ‘It can be hard to walk with this disease, or even just to move.'”

Recently, National MS Society used a record $3M gift to expand services and outreach programs to multiple sclerosis patients.

    I have been to three MS Seminars in St. Louis /St. Charles, Missouri were Clay Walker and his band performed after the seminar. One time I was chosen to meet him in person prior to the seminar and have a picture taken with him. He tells his story about his MS, tells jokes and other funny stories. His band is great and they travel all over by bus spreading his story about MS and is very motivational. Very enjoyable show. Thanks Clay Walker. 🙂

    I met Teri Garr at a seminar in St. Louis in the early 2000’s a few years after I was diagnosed with MS. She told her story say that her gait was really bad at the beginning before she was diagnosed, and many people thought she was always drunk. She was very motivational, funny. Afterwards, she met with each person at the seminar and they got their picture taken with her and received a copy of her book. Teri Garr made me laugh because I have some of the same MS symptoms she spoke about. I can now laugh about them or make a joke about it when they occur when I’m out in the public. Thanks Teri, for making me laugh. I would love it if Teri would come back to St. Louis, Missouri, again in the future.
