A little bit longer

If you are on facebook, you've seen this. If you are on my email list, you've seen this. But on the chance that you are a loyal reader of my blog who I am unaware of...this post is for you. (and I am sorry to everyone else who has seen this:)

Donate, get others to donate, join my team, walk with me, make your own team, walk wherever you are, it doesn't matter what you do as long as you do it! This is about MS--a disease we live with every day since Aaron's diagnosis 3 years ago.

For now, he is healthy and the medication he is taking seems to be doing its job. But it's the future we are uncertain of, and frankly, the uncertainty is the hardest thing to live with.
Every night Aaron gives himself a shot that is unable to heal him because there is no cure. Instead it gives him just a little bit longer..... A little bit longer to walk, to remember, to see. Imagine living a life like him. Imagine not knowing whether or not you will be able to throw a baseball with your son in a few years, or tomorrow for that matter. Imagine not knowing if you will be able to dance with your daughter on her wedding day. To work. To climb mountains. To grow old together, the way you should be able grow old together. It is absolutely heart wrenching.

And so now I ask you to join me in this fight to find a cure. A cure that means Aaron can throw a baseball with our son and dance with our daughter on her wedding day. A cure to give us more than just a little bit longer...

I can't imagine. I know that it is so hard to go through what you go through emotionally every day and many thoughts. I want him to be here in his best state as long as possible! He inspires me! Especially about how he wants to make sure his family is taken care of because he doesn't know his future. He works so hard! He has such a devotion to his family! He loves his little girl and little boy... He wants to be there and spend as much time as possible! Love ya! I am here! Count Me In!
