World MS Day 2014: What is Your Wish?

One day.  Today.  What is your wish?

World MS Day (WMSD) was established by the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) and its more than 67 member MS societies worldwide to create the only global awareness raising campaign for MS. Every year, the MS movement comes together to provide the public with information about MS and to raise awareness on how it affects the lives of more than two million people around the world.

This year MSIF asked people to imagine a world without barriers and to submit their One day wish to be shared on the Wish Wall launched today.  The Wall is a place to explore everyone's wishes and find out about access issues around the world.  This year's theme is quality of access which is about more than just getting into buildings or bathrooms.

What is a One day wish?

We all have hopes and dreams for the future, whoever we are and wherever we live. It may be to take a salsa class, write a novel, get your dream job, or even fall in love. A One day wish is your chance to share that wish with the world – a step towards overcoming whatever barriers might be in the way.

In related news, my friend George Pepper co-founder of, a social network for MSers around the world to connect, gain information, and become empowered, has launched a new video in their series, this one addressing the question of whether to reveal your recent MS diagnosis at work.
