Thanks for the opportunity to present this to you; an Awareness of MS (And this is not the Software Story)
I have been Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in January, 2009. Since then it has been an interesting and long journey. Currently I have made the decision to get medically boarded.
But this request is not about myself as a person but more about Awareness regarding MS. I have been blogging just to start creating Awareness of MS and my personal Journey. See attached a link that was relevant to a day in my life at SAP (http://jeanelize.blogspot.com/2012/03/life-after.html ). I was blessed I had the most unbelievable support from number of people within SAP as a whole and I will always be thankful.
But with 30th of May being the World MS day I would like to create more awareness to people as this is one of those illnesses that due to my personal situation needs to be made aware to our communities. With currently no cure for MS we the PWMS (People with MS) life each day with DreaMS that it will happen.
There are some really informative videos on You Tube like the following:

· http://www.worldmsday.org – World MS Day website with 1000 plus faces off MS
I am not a medical expert in this regard I would really like to share what is it Like in a day of a MS Patient, as we all experience it differently but most of our symptoms are similar. I would like to create more awareness regarding MS as always interesting that people need to understand that although we as PWMS really hate the statement that is “But you look so good” yes we look normal and we act normal but ultimately know that we will never have the Life that we have planned.
Thanks for your support
