My New Ramp

Here is a picture of my new ramp, and the great guys who built it for me. Many thanks to Don and Mason with the Bike the US for MS organization, and Steve who owns Grayson Place Building near Charlottesville, VA. Don, Mason and Steve worked this past Saturday and Sunday, building me a ramp that makes it easier and safer for me to get from my front door to the car and back. Please take a look at Don's website -- http://www.biketheusforms.org/

I also found out that Don put a video of me on YouTube. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uQNTI48lMI&feature=player_embedded

This group of super nice men and women are riding from the coast of Virginia to the coast of Oregon this summer. Their goal is not only to collect donations for MS, but also to give a hand to people with MS along the route they'll be taking. If you live along this route, let them know. If you know of anyone with MS who lives along the route who may need a helping hand, please let them know about Bike the US for MS.
Thanks, maryann and montana

  3. Hi Maryann,

    I've been trying to get in touch with bloggers in the MS community. I work with BioMS Medical, a company developing a very promising treatment for Secondary Progressive MS. As you noted that you may have "crossed the border" into SPMS, you may be interested in finding out more. Let me know and I can send you some information. E-mail: tpitta@schwartz-pr.com

    Thanks, Tim
