Living with MS and PCOs by Desiree
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in January of 2007 and it's been a learning experience ever since. Currently I'm experiencing my second flare-up this year and this one has been a bit rougher than the last. I take rebif injections three times a week as an attempt to control my flare-ups along with a variety of other pills. I'm also currently on metformin to treat poly cystic ovarian syndrome. I work full-time, go to school full-time and reside in a small rental house in Central New York with my husband, three cats and brindled mutt.

Run Some More by Joe
For many people, completing a marathon is huge accomplishment, but Michigan native Joe Fairchild is running 3,400 miles across the entire United States. Along the way Joe will be raising money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.

He will be making the journey alone, pushing all of his essentials—a tent, sleeping bag, clothes, food, water—in a modified baby stroller. “To me the run is a spiritual journey. I hope to discover more about myself while taking in the beauty of this great country.”
