Ed “Flash” Ferenc: Why we fight MS
Stephanie Ferenc, one year later.
It’s hard to believe over a year has passed since we learned that my daughter Stephanie, at the young age of 18, was diagnosed with MS, Multiple Sclerosis.
Granted, it has been very difficult for her and all of us to accept that she had this disease, but what a trooper she has become! Yes there have been setbacks, but also there’s been progress and with progress, there is hope. Throughout it all, she has held her head high, followed her doctors orders and is doing everything possible to lead her life as normal as possible.
Stephanie is now a student at Ohio State University with a 3.7 GPA. She’s planning a career around her artistic skills, perhaps Art Therapy, so she can help others cope with diseases like MS. This summer she plans to volunteer at a local non-profit organization that helps the grieving through difficult times
Yes, she amazes all of us and will continue to do so.
And that’s why she’s the heart and soul of Motivate Steph, our team that will be in the MS Walk in this Cleveland Saturday, May 16th. Last year we raised over $14,000 — money that went to help find a cure for MS and help others with the disease that do not enjoy the comprehensive medical coverage we have to cover the high costs of the medicines now on the market specifically for MS patients.
Together we can fight MS and yes we can win.
