We Keep Moving: National MS Society

Written on: March 22nd, 2010 in Helping Our Neighbors

On Friday, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society launched their first video story at  Here’s the theme of the awareness campaign:

“Moving forward is what life is all about. We Keep Moving is a site for people affected by multiple sclerosis – unique stories about what it means to live with MS and journeys of overcoming the obstacles – how we each keep moving in our own way. Join us as we embark on a ten-week journey across the country and hear from ten amazing individuals about how they keep moving regardless of multiple sclerosis.”

The message and the stories I’ve heard so far are relevant and inspirational for all of us.

Earlier this month, I was surprised to be named “Governor of the Year” by the National MS Society.  It was truly an honor, even more so because I had the opportunity to meet so many dedicated, warm-hearted and interesting people.

I know that the Delaware Chapter works extremely hard to help people with MS move their lives forward.  In fact, right now they’re busy getting ready for this year’s Walk MS events on April 17th I want to thank them for their ongoing efforts.

Standing (L to R) are National MS Society, Delaware Chapter, board members Lawrence D. Green and Maria C. Schaffer; Debra Veenema, the chapter’s director of programs and services; board member Heyward Damon, Jr.; Gov. Jack Markell; board member Diana Caine; Kate Cowperthwait, the chapter’s president; and seated are Marie Eldreth, the chapter’s coordinator of programs and advocacy, and MS advocate Darnell Trower.
