I recently read a really interesting article on FaceBook written by a neuro nurse who also has MS. It was a well written, easily understood breakdown of the MS disease process and she noted that a neurologist had coined the descriptive term the “Whack-A-Mole” of sickness because symptoms change and evolve and can be totally different depending on what part of the brain is currently affected. Today could be leg weakness, later on vision, tomorrow bladder, and I can confirm they can change that fast. It is like a switch has been flipped and something else is misfiring.
In order to research and find treatments for MS of course takes money. The National MS Society relies on donations for funding their projects. They offer patient and caregiver resources, help with home changes, they promote education, and offer many more options for people dealing with this frustrating illness.
In doing my part I am offering these keychains for sale for the amount of a $5 donation, with 90% of the proceeds to go to the MS Society for our local Walk MS Marshfield. These are my creation made from repurposed Jenga game blocks painted and decoupaged with patterned paper, and sealed with a mod podge varnish. A split ring attachment for your keys or bag is included. There is a metal tag stamped with the word courage or hope, or cure MS. The remaining 10% of your donation will cover materials and supplies. This offer is available until April 20th, 2015.

Your paypal donation will be greatly appreciated, and your keychain will be mailed out immediately upon your purchase. Due to the variations and assortment, you will be sent a random piece, but if you do have a special request I will try to accommodate you. Thank you again for helping me to do my part to help eliminate an overwhelming illness.
