We Are Valuable*

I want to share the following story from a Max Lucado book. "It seems a couple of prowlers broke into a department store. They did what they came to do and left undetected. They took no merchandise. Nothing was removed. Instead of stealing, they changed the cost of everything.  $5.00 on a camera.  $395.00 on a… Read More

I was just diagnosed with MS 1 month ago. I’ve had lesions that they’ve brushed off as migraines for years.

Lupron is a… Read More

Young People with MS

Hi, I am 19 and was diagnosed with MS when I was sixteen. I feel like there is a lot of support for parents with kids with MS but have not found anything for youth with MS, specifically a venue for these youth to connect.

Back in elementary school, we were introduced to the idea of "goals". What kind? Well, we could try and win at sports in gym, get a certain mark on a test, or hit a high note in music. They started us off simple, getting us to focus on what we wanted and work towards it. In junior high we had to start outlining… Read More
