Continuing her journey of raising $10,000 for the MSGlobal charitable bicycle tour, our CEO Lisa Mattis is back on her bike this week riding for Julie Hare, a 2014 CAN DO® Program Alumna. Julie shared with us how she first isolated herself after being diagnosed with MS in 2009. Then she found Can Do MS and the CAN DO Program, which in her words, was the "game changer" she needed. "With help from Can Do MS, I made the choice to adapt my lifestyle and continue to benefit from that decision every day."

Check out Julie's story and help Lisa provide more "game changers" to people with MS and their families by donating today.

...“Is mom going to die?” eleven-year-old Patrick asked his father.
“No, but she may fall down more,” answered Dick. “And we’ll just pick her up and keep going.” ...

Robin Kelly was diagnosed with MS in 2006. After attending our CAN DO Program, she decided to give back to help us transform more lives. Check out her Can Do Story >> http://www.mscando.org/living-with-multiple-sclerosis/can-do-story-of-the-month/

All aboard! A cruise vacation is an excellent choice for people with ‪#‎MS‬. You can visit a lot of ports and only unpack once, which saves a lot of energy. Additionally, since todays cruise ships offer a variety of healthy menu options and state-of-the-art exercise facilities, it’s easy to stay in shape while at sea. Last but not least, if fatigue hits while you’re on a cruise, it’s easy to alter your schedule and enjoy a low-key day on the ship. Check out our tips and tricks for planning an accessible cruise http://bit.ly/1NSF7Tv

We had wonderful weekend in Glendale, CA at our JUMPSTART Program! Every time we put on a program, we come back to the office inspired by all the wonderful people we meet who are ‪#‎morethantheirMS‬ And often, when you attend one program, you come back for more! It was great to see Hazel and her support partner Sam (and their service dog Virgil!) who have previously participated in our TAKE CHARGE Program and our Adaptive Ski Experience in Squaw! Jane and Steve also caught the ‘can do’ spirit during their Adaptive Ski Experience, so what a joy it was to see them back at our JUMPSTART Program. Learn more about our programs that transform lives: http://www.mscando.org/multiple-sclerosis-programs/ 1st pic from this past Saturday's JUMPSTART Program-- front: Hazel w/service dog Virgil, back: Jane and Steve

Firsts mean a lot.
The first time Valarie Brunjes walked in three years. The first time Arwen Kirby was able to go skiing with her family. The first time Nikki Aragon realized she wasn't alone.
We'd like give a special shout out to our 2016 first-time donors and welcome you all to the Can Do MS family. Thank you for your first gift to Can Do MS and for helping people like Valarie, Arwen, and Nikki reclaim their lives. Read more in this month's newsletter. http://bit.ly/MayMSnews
The number of lives transformed through our exercise, nutrition, and mental motivation programs and services in just four months. Thanks to you, we are on our way to impact 20000 lives by the end of the year. Firsts mean a lot. The first time Valarie Brunjes walked in three years.

A Mother's Day gift idea that pays it forward...and I see they just added an infinity scarf to the mix of jewelry items! Ten dollars from each item is donated back to our organization and will be used to help us provide more programs for people with MS and their support partners. It adds up fast -- last year we raised over $17,000! Start shopping!

Bravelets bracelets are more than just something to wear on your wrist. They are designed to help you be brave in the toughest of times. For each item purchased, $10 is donated to the cause of choice.
