I am Memray, and I have MS. MS is Multiple Sclerosis, and it’s an autoimmune disease.

I’ve learned MS has visible and invisible symptoms. The visible symptoms are my physical limitations, in terms of my ability to walk and balance issues I have. My strength has been weakened, you know, just the overall weakness of my body. The invisible symptom that is so awful—it’s awful—is the fatigue.

Before MS, I mean…it was a normal life. I was raising my child, who is now a young man. But I was the primary provider for my son. You know, I took those (responsibilities) seriously—being a mother and providing in any capacity that I can. I was consumed with that. And now, I’m consumed with the MS.

When I learned about The Assistance Fund, It was definitely a relief—a peace of mind. My encounters with The Assistance Fund have always been so straightforward and simplified, and I just appreciate that. I really do.

What I’d offer to others is…just live your life now. Not being reckless, but just live your life. Enjoy your life.
