Join us in raising money for Brett Sides to help with expenses as he battles MS.

What is MS?
Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.
Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another.

Facts
- MS affects 400,000 people in the United States
- MS is the most common progressive and disabling neurological condition in young adults
- Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease

Brett's Story
Just about 3 months ago while Brett was training for his first half marathon, he noticed his left leg wasn't quite feeling right. When it didn't get better he decided to get it checked out at the Doctor. Last thing he (or anyone else) expected when going to the Doctor was being diagnosed with MS. As you can imagine, from that Doctor visit forward his medical bills have only continued to pile up. All the testing, procedures and treatment necessary certainly aren't cheap.

Now, everyone who knows Brett knows he is the kind of guy that would without a doubt be there for anyone else during a time like this, without asking for anything in return. So please, lets help give him the resources he needs in order to pay for the best treatment available and receive the hope and attitude he needs to fight this disease.

Thank you, every cent counts!
