The MS Quality of Life Project was my lifeline for me and my late husband. I turned to them for everyday practical needs as well for support with coping with major health decisions. I remember the day when my husband began to have trouble walking and we were stuck on a sidewalk in Pacific Grove. In a panic, I called the MS Quality of Life Project. They dropped what they were doing and sent an angel with a walker to the sidewalk where we were stuck. We were able to complete our very important doctor’s visit. Another instance I called from CHOMP hospital and again I received helpful information in a time of crisis. I was able to make important decisions based on their help. My daughter called MS Quality of Life to interview one of their staff for her senior project in high school. She was able to present a well informed talk about MS educating the community. I could never say enough wonderful things about MS Quality of Life. They are outstanding and excellent in every way. They have been an amazing gift to me. Thank you MS Quality of Life from the bottom of my heart!

I really do not know what I would have done with out Msqlp the past 2 years.
were it not for them I would not have known about many resources available, especially when my condition so quickly progressed to the point where I could no longer walk and needed a loaner wheelchair fast. They are always so helpful when I call, even when I am frustrated with processes like trying to get a chair of my own and issues with my doctor and medicare. I tell people about them all the time. I am so grateful!

As a practicing R.N. for over 35 years and working in many challenging fields of practice, I am so very glad to read of the importance of gratitude in your newsletter. This behavior is clearly a cellular changer. Your newsletter is always a joy to read. Getting to know the staff and volunteers on a level that makes me feel close to them even though I have only read about there passion for the work they do in the newsletter. I firmly believe the core of life is sharing and being available to each other, and your group delivers on each account. You all are providing more than you will ever know to those who may not be able to express the gratitude they feel in their hearts. So I am here to say Thank You for your love and service!~!~!
