A number of people have asked if they can donate money "for the cause" in connection with the big trip. And although I am not in this explicitly to raise awareness of MS or funds aimed at its cure, I recognize that this is as good an opportunity as I've ever had to do just that. As a result, I'm encouraging everybody who wants to give a little in support of the hundreds of thousands of people like me who suffer through this terrible illness to give to the Accelerated Cure Project. While other MS charities may be more well-known, none that I'm aware of are better dedicated to the goal of not just alleviating the symptoms of MS but actually curing the disease. Call me a dreamer, but that's what I'm talking about when I say let's all get together and do something about MS. My sister has been kind enough to organize this effort and has set up a page to explain the donation process for Accelerated Cure a little better. Please visit it at:
I'm not even sure if the Accelerated Cure Project knows we're doing this fund-raising (although they did send us some shiny white t-shirts for our trip), but I guess that's not really the point. So please, help if you can. Thanks.
