MS HELPING HANDS-MSHH
October 31, 2010

I have MS. I can walk, I can stand, I just can't do either one for very long. I have 5 children and we live on 5 acres. This last summer I was almost home bound in our small trailer. I would watch my kids through the window playing with the animals or exploring the trees, but I couldn't go with them, it was just too far to walk. I knew how wonderful it would be to have an all terrain scooter, but there's no money for that we can barely pay our bills. I didn't think there was any help for something like that and honestly I felt selfish to even ask. I mean I can walk so how could I ask for a scooter just so I could get outside around our place and make memories with my kids. Finally in August after my 7 year old had come in to ask again "mommy can't you come outside with us, I'll help you if you fall down", I called MS helping hands. By that day was over I got a call that they had an all terrain scooter that was for me. I said I have no money to give. They said there was no charge...Now I'm going on regular "walks" with my kids, my goats and dogs are so happy to see me again, my depression that I fought so hard to hide is gone, and when my 7 year old asks me to come outside and see what he has discovered I say "lets go!" I thank God for MS Helping Hands!

The Great!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only change I would make is to give them more funds so they could help more people.
