77. I Don't Know If I Completely Agree With You About Ann Romney.....

the fact that she has MS and is not experiencing any debilitating symptoms - people that see her and hear that she has MS - minimize the disease and don't think of it as a serious debilitating disease.

This has to hurt foundations that are formed to help people with MS raise money to help MS patients. You might say that "she doesn't represent what MS is" - but to people that hear that she has MS and see that she can carry on her normal daily activities basically unscathed - might get the impression that MS is not a serious disease.

Upon reading this thread - I did and internet search to find out more about the disease. It is really a devastating disease and like it has been mentioned in this thread - all people don't exhibit the same symptoms. Some are really debilitated and are mobility challenged - others like Ann Romney can basically carry on normal day to day activities.

For anyone in the Chicagoland Area I came across this Foundation called TEAM CHRISSY. They are trying to raise money to help people in the Chicago Area that are afflicted with the disease. Looks like if you do have MS - this would be a good foundation to get in touch with. Their website is: www.teamchrissy.org

I see where you can make a donation through PayPal on their site and after reading this thread - I'm going to donate to them.
